Infection Rates of novel coronavirus Much Higher than Official Reports
Nearly 44,000 people are already infected by the Wuhan coronavirus, warned academic researchers from the University of Hong Kong, according to a report in the South China Morning Post. The “official” number of infections claimed by the communist Chinese government is only 2,900, revealing a desperate effort to cover up the true numbers and lie to the world about a dangerous, deadly pandemic.
Natural News reported that at least 300,000 residents of Wuhan had fled the city before the quarantine went into effect. Now, Wuhan mayor Zhou Xianwang has confirmed that news, expanding it to five million residents who fled. This means it’s almost certain that large numbers of coronavirus-infected residents of Wuhan were able to escape the quarantine there. Given the roughly 10-day incubation period of the virus, many of those people have already traveled to a long list of cities around the world.
Importantly, the Wuhan coronavirus is known to be infectious during its incubation period, which means that people are spreading the pandemic even before they realize they’re sick themselves. According to a recent analysis published in The Lancet, family members of victims exposed to coronavirus showed no symptoms for 8 days before finally being diagnosed with full-blown symptoms. Additionally, about 2% of those infected show no signs of fever or respiratory distress, meaning they are able to pass right through airport security screening measures.
