On Tuesday, House members introduced a bipartisan resolution condemning China’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak that originated in the Wuhan district of China.
Ib Times reports – The legislation, spearheaded by Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., and Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., has accused the government of China of making a number of “serious mistakes,” including the censorship of journalists and doctors in the initial stages of the outbreak and also spreading misinformation in order to downplay the virus and actions, which have “heightened” the spread and severity of coronavirus.
The resolution demands that the Chinese Government “publicly state that there’s no evidence that COVID–19 originated anywhere else but China” as a measure for their actions. The resolution also asked the Chinese Government to denounce the theory that the U.S. Army brought the virus to Wuhan, the center of the outbreak.
Earlier today, liberals on social media were incredibly gleeful over reports that the number of Chinese coronavirus cases in America have exceeded the number of cases in China, where the virus originated. #CongratulationsAmerica was trending on Twitter with tweets mocking America for exceeding China’s number of coronavirus cases:

Multiple media outlets shamelessly reported the ridiculous statistics as though they were well-confirmed facts:
You were right–the world is no longer laughing at America, @realDonaldTrump. Now they're all scrambling for surgical masks and backing away from us as fast as they can. #TrumpLiesKill #ThursdayThoughts #CongratulationsAmerica @jilevin @docrocktex26 @princessbravato @mcspocky https://t.co/ypnMymYI3J

Most sane Americans know better than to trust coronavirus statistics coming out of Communist China.
The population in China exceeds 1.4 billion. According to WHO (World Health Organization), China reported 81, 961 confirmed cases of coronavirus with only 3,293 deaths. The population in Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus breakout originated is 8,365,000. According to WHO, the number of U.S. citizens who have tested positive for coronavirus is currently at 63,570 and the number of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. stood at 884 as of yesterday. The U.S. has a population of 329 million.
Does anyone really believe China’s coronavirus infection and fatality numbers?
On February 6, 2020, Business Insider reported that the number of coronavirus deaths in China is closer to 25,000.
Taipei, Chinese multinational conglomerate holding company Tencent has allegedly published “real” data on the novel coronavirus deaths, with briefly listing death toll as 24,589 — way too higher than over 500 deaths China has officially announced to date.
According to Taiwan News, “Tencent… seems to have inadvertently released what is potentially the actual number of infections and deaths, which were astronomically higher than official figures”.
Tencent, on its webpage titled “Epidemic Situation Tracker,” showed confirmed cases of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in China as standing at 154,023 – over 10 times the official figure given to the world on February 1.
There have been multiple reports of Wuhan officials cremating citizens before they could be added to the actual death toll.
According to a recent article by the Epoch Times, Business Insider may be way off the mark.
Epoch Times reports that Beijing authorities announced on March 19, the number of Chinese cellphone users dropped by 21 million in the past three months. 21 million is a stunning number of cellphone users to disappear, given that Chinese residents are required to use their cellphones by the communist government.
Deaths due to the CCP virus may have contributed to the high number of account closings.
Cellphones are an indispensable part of life in China.
“The digitization level is very high in China. People can’t survive without a cellphone,” Tang Jingyuan, a U.S.-based China affairs commentator, told The Epoch Times on March 21. “Dealing with the government for pensions and social security, buying train tickets, shopping … no matter what people want to do, they are required to use cellphones.
“The Chinese regime requires all Chinese to use their cellphones to generate a health code. Only with a green health code are Chinese allowed to move in China now. It’s impossible for a person to cancel his cellphone.”
China introduced mandatory facial scans on Dec. 1, 2019, to confirm the identity of the person who registered the phone. As early as Sept. 1, 2010, China required all cellphone users to register phones with their real identification, by which the state can control people’s speech via its large-scale monitoring system.
Furthermore, Chinese people’s bank accounts and social security accounts are bundled with their cellphone plans; apps on Chinese phones check SIM cards against the state’s database to make sure the number belongs to the user.
Beijing first launched cellphone-based health codes on March 10. All people in China must install a cellphone app and register their personal health information. Then the app can generate a QR code, which appears in three colors, to classify the user’s health level. Red means the person has an infectious disease, yellow means the person might have one, and green means the person doesn’t.
Beijing claimed that the health codes are intended to prevent the spread of the CCP virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus.
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.
The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.
The 2020 decrease in landline users may be due to the nationwide quarantine in February, during which small businesses were shut down. But the decrease in cellphone users can’t be explained in this way.
