    There was another Chinese national arrested for something similar in the US very recently.

    Heading to Wuhan right now. Hanging out for 24 hours. Flying right back.

    While you idiots are coughing to death trying to force your way into over capacity hospitals, I’ll have already received the best care available and built up immunity.

    "There is this white dude in Wuhan going around hugging and kissing everyone. It is quite disturbing."

    That’s a Chinese service that put up two sets of numbers. Taiwan is just the country reporting it to us.

    I don't believe that this is related to any bioweapon, but think about how profoundly stupid such weapons are. Just absolutely stupid.

    but at the same time, an authoritarian government lying about a catastrophe is very, very plausible.

    The numbers being reported are almost certainly inaccurate. That is likely due to both diagnostic difficulties and outright dishonesty.

    I used to do economic impact real estate studies for amusement parks in china. no one used the govt census data because they knew it was completely fabricated.

    There is zero doubt in my mind that China's numbers are cooked, but I dont think that Tencent is incompetent enough to report the uncooked numbers in their public virus tracking page. But anyone could go edit the page and take a pic of it and spread it around

    If the estimated delivery dates on things ordered from Wish are any indicator, the entire country may have a problem with the maths.

    On that note, I got a package ordered through Wish the other day. I've been sick since shortly after opening it.

    When you order worn panties, you do assume some level of risk.
