A week ago, China said that as of January 12, the death toll from Covid in its hospitals was only around 60,000. But the truth is that official figures from China have been viewed with skepticism by much of the world. This dreadfulness of Corona has increased in China when at the beginning of last month, it suddenly relaxed the very strict Corona restrictions.
Further 36,000 daily deaths estimated

The thing to note here is that even in this official figure of China, those people have not been counted, whose lives Kovid has taken at their homes. Airfinity, an independent forecasting company, has estimated that more than 36,000 people will die every day due to COVID in China during the Lunar New Year holidays.

Where did this 80% theory come from all of a sudden?
He expressed the hope that ‘if we say in short, for example, for the next two-three months, there is very little possibility of a second wave in the whole country…..’ Surprisingly, the big health officials of China are now They are saying that 80 percent of the people have been infected.
