There's no question that the Communist Chinese regime is vastly underreporting the number of deaths from the Wuhan virus. That's according to a human rights advocate who spent many years in China.
President Donald Trump said this week that the numbers of coronavirus-related deaths reported by Beijing "seem to be a little on the light side." This followed a report by U.S. intelligence officials that leaders in China intentionally underreported the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths.
Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, is an internationally recognized authority on China. He says it's clear that the reported number is too low based on reliable reports about crematoria activity in the Wuhan area. According to Mosher, crematoriums there were operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
"They were disposing in one crematorium alone of a thousand corpses every week – and there were seven crematoriums that size in Wuhan and seven more in the surrounding area," he describes. "You do the math. These things were going for six weeks. The real numbers – just judging by the fact that the ovens were fired up all the time for weeks on end – is 40 or 50 thousand."
And Mosher says there's another confirmation of that figure: they ran out of urns. "They had one crematorium they delivered 5,000 urns to in the course of two days. That's just one crematorium!" he emphasizes. "Multiply that by, say, ten and you get a number of 50,000."
Mosher adds that people were lined up for hundreds of meters to pick up the urns carrying the ashes of their loved ones.
Mosher is among a group of China experts, national security practitioners, human rights and religious freedom activists, and business leaders comprising the new "Committee on the Present Danger: China," whose mission is to "help defend America through public education and advocacy against the full array of conventional and non-conventional dangers" posed by the Beijing communist regime.
