Chinese Health authorities said the number of COVID-19 patients needing critical care in China’s hospitals has peaked. Meaning, it will soon start to go down.

Alongside the news, Chinese Communist Party head Xi Jinping said, “light is ahead.”

Three foreign reporters wanted to investigate these claims for themselves. So they traveled to Northwestern China’s Gansu province to take a closer look.

According to Radio Free Asia, the local Propaganda Department sought to counter these foreign reporters.
