The world watched as U.S. COVID-19 deaths climbed past 1 million on Johns Hopkins University’s chart, but China’s number stayed below 5,000. Three years later, China is now changing its tune, saying tens of thousands have officially died from the virus. But is that the real number? A new study from Peking University estimates over 900 million are infected with the virus in China. The study goes on to note that, of that number, 80 percent are facing severe symptoms. Now, that study has already been deleted from all platforms in the country. Is China about to see a massive death wave?
