In documents leaked by whistleblowers within the Chinese health system, the data shows an underreporting of the disease since the start of the epidemic. The documents revealed how health officials marked the documents as internal or confidential in order to prevent the true cause of the illness from being reported. Journalists were also given strict reporting orders, preventing the real horrific numbers from being released to the world.

As documents forwarded to CNN show, the cases were divided into “confirmed”, “clinically diagnosed” and “suspected” cases.
By doing so, health experts now claim that it was nearly impossible to establish the real numbers for the coronavirus outbreak.

In one example, data showed that official figures had reported 2,478 cases as of February 10.

In fact, 5,918 cases were identified on the same day in what constitutes one of the largest leaks from China.

A lab technician told the Press Association that it was becoming “mission impossible” to confirm new cases of the virus in Wuhan while the Communist Party also forced local agencies to pass all data to the central government.

Staff at the Center for Disease Control also claimed the practices were so abnormal that they were convinced testing was stalled.

A doctor at a Zhongnan hospital sounded the alarm about the data obstruction and criticized the criteria for reporting cases.

Health officials at the hospital informed government authorities of the worsening situation in January.

China was the first country to report a case of the virus and currently has 86,619 confirmed cases.

However, world leaders have questioned the true epidemic of the virus in the country.

Outgoing US President Donald Trump has called for an independent investigation into the virus and had claimed to have evidence of an alleged cover-up – although details were not made public.

This week, Chinese officials said they will speed up approval of its nationally-made coronavirus vaccine.

China currently has five vaccines in production and are currently being tested in states such as Russia, Mexico and Egypt.

Officials, however, have not indicated how they will distribute the vaccine to the 1.4 billion people.

Chinese officials have also not heard of the drug’s side effects.

More than one million healthcare workers and others deemed to be at high risk have received experimental vaccines for emergency use.
