Coronavirus cases explode in China
Local officials said they expect the number to double within days. The previous day, it was determined that 530 thousand people were infected in one day in Qingdao, which has a population of 9 million, in the north. Despite this, there have been no deaths due to the virus in the last five days, according to official figures. In the meantime, it has been announced that the daily number of cases will no longer be shared. Thus, the practice that has been going on since the first days of 2020 came to an end.
NO NUMBERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED NOW
China’s National Health Commission did not share details on the reason for the policy change. However, in the country where harsh restrictions were relaxed after the protests in the past weeks, comments are made that the COVID-19 situation “needs to be hidden” in order not to appear unsuccessful.
