US President Donald Trump doubts the accuracy of the figures of the coronavirus cases revealed by the Chinese. These assumptions and doubt have been developed US lawmakers and distinguished members of the intelligence committee have accused China of hiding the real numbers.

It has reported that the number of affected cases and deaths has all been faked by China. The US President at a regular press briefing on Wednesday said that “The numbers seem to be a little bit on the light side – and I am being nice when I say that – relative to what we witnessed and what was reported.” Even though he doesn’t fail to mention that the relation between China and the US is not at all malicious as he is still was in touch with President Jinping but there is however a conspiracy between the US and China that would be blamed for the outbreak of the pandemic, whether it was China who started the spread or whether it started with the visit of the US military officials.

As of Thursday, China has reported 81,554 infected cases 3,312deaths. In contrast, Italy has reported 110,574 infected cases and 13,155deaths and Spain has 104,118 infected cases and 9,387 deaths have been reportedThe US has confirmed 215,300 infections along which more than 297 cases reported today & 5,110 deaths (among which 8 new deaths today) according to World Meter. 

The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on this remark avoiding direct reply to the briefing of Trump on Thursday “to slander, to discredit, to blame others or to shift responsibility cannot make up the time that has been lost.”

A senator, on the other hand, comments that China the way they have hidden the real numbers and has revealed the fake numbers since late 2019 “garbage propaganda” and mentions that the Chinese Communist Party is lying. Michael McCaul, top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee mentions that China is not a trustworthy partner to deal with and fight the pandemic and added: “They lied to the world about the human-to-human transmission of the virus, silenced doctors and journalists who tried to report the truth, and are now apparently hiding the accurate number of people impacted by this disease.” Family members of the deceased mention that some patients who had symptoms and had died before testing were not mentioned in the death toll, is what they assume.

China to date had changed the criteria of the affirmative cases numerous times, the doctors long back had an idea that it would be resulting in a huge outbreak but doctors, journalists were kept in silence. Though several urns now had been delivered to the family of the deceased today in Wuhan. An official at Wuhan’s Civil Affairs Bureau said on Monday that the number of the deceased patients will be revealed in the second week of June as scheduled and that there is no plan to alter the data.
