Reports coming out are starting to make the actions taken to battle the coronavirus in Wuhan, China sound like they come straight from a Stephen King novel. If true, they raise a whole new set of questions about China’s recent selection to the UN Human Rights Council.
As the Covid-19 virus broke out in Wuhan, China, the city and province were met with the extreme force of lockdowns. Videos released by the Australian Broadcasting Corp shows Chinese authorities welding doors to apartment buildings shut.
Chen Guangcheng, a Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize winner, wrote about the Chinese response to the outbreak and called the Chinese Communist Party a threat to humanity.
USA Today wrote an article mentioning this and titled: “This is what China did to beat the coronavirus. Experts say America couldn’t handle it”.
Couldn’t handle it? How about that should never happen in America because it’s the force of a brutal regime and completely contradicts any semblance of freedom?
Now reports are coming out about a disgusting practice that allegedly took place in Wuhan during the outbreak.
According to Radio Free Asia, locals in Wuhan, China have reported hearing screams coming from funeral home furnaces and some are even saying they witnessed authorities putting live people in body bags, zipping it up, and hauling them off to be cremated.
One story is of an older lady, in her 60's or so and being treated at a Wuhan hospital, describing how they put a guy into a body bag while he was still alive and moving.
“She said that the man was weak but was still breathing when medical workers ‘bound his head’ and then his hands and feet, which were ‘still moving"
New Tang Dynasty released a video of the woman telling the story. It has not, however, been independently verified, something that's tough to do in China.
This is also raising new questions about the actual death toll in China being much higher than reported. Virtually a day after China kicked out American reporters, they reported an almost complete halt to new cases and deaths. However, Wuhan residents are apparently saying that the death toll may be at least 10 times higher than what the Chinese are reporting.
