As the number of COVID-19 cases reach new heights, China is jubilant. In the country where the pandemic began less than a year ago, there have been 91,000 cases of COVID-19 recorded, with about 4,800 deaths.
Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) also tells us that China has conducted more than 160 million tests, the highest number in the world.
Life has returned to normal in most provinces in China. People go out, dance and visit public places as if nothing had happened. It’s quite an incredible feat.
But 42 other countries, including Canada, have seen more cases than China, which is the most populous country in the world. Considering what’s happening elsewhere, and with its 1.4 billion inhabitants, the data coming out of China is not only beyond comprehension, it’s cruelly misleading for the rest of us.
