About 250 million people in China have been infected with Corona 19 this month, Taiwan's central news agency reported.
Citing a meeting document of the National Health Commission of China leaked on the Internet yesterday (22nd), the media quoted, "From the 1st to the 20th of this month, 248 million people were infected, accounting for 17.56% of the total population of China. thing," he said.
This document was prepared by the National Center for Disease Control and reported to the Wigan Commission.
According to this document, Beijing and Sichuan had the most infections this month, with more than 50% of the total population infected, and Tianjin, Hubei, Henan, Hunan, Anhui, Gansu, and Hebei also had infection rates of 20 to 50%.
In addition, the number of infected people in China continued to increase, and on the 20th alone, 36,996,000 people, or 2.63% of the total population, were infected.
The cumulative number of infections exceeded 20 million in Sichuan, Henan, and Hubei, and more than 10 million were infected in Hunan, Hebei, Beijing, Anhui, and Shandong.
In particular, Tianjin and Hebei reached the peak of the epidemic, and Beijing entered a stable downward trend after passing the peak, but it turned out that the provision of medical services was under great pressure due to the large number of sick and severe patients.
The National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has observed that regions with rapid spread of Corona 19 will pass the peak of this wave within a week, and several regions across the country will peak at the end of this month.
Chinese quarantine authorities have stopped publishing statistics on asymptomatic Corona 19 infections since the 14th, and recently announced that the number of new symptomatic infections per day is between 2,000 and 3,000.
However, disbelief and ridicule are pouring in, pointing out that it did not properly reflect reality as the number of patients with fever suspected of being infected with Corona 19 and deaths exploded across China.
