Without freedom of speech, the coronavirus crisis shall be hard to end

China has reported its death toll from the coronavirus Friday to 722, while new cases jumped to 34,546, according to the CCP government’s FAKE figures.

Just bear in mind that the figures are fabricated. The real situation could be much worse and the number of deaths could be ten times higher.

Authorities in Wuhan city have started going door to door checking temperatures, and rounding up suspected coronavirus patients for forcible quarantine in stadiums and exhibition centres that are serving as warehouses for the sick, the New York Times reported.

“With these barbaric measures, the evil police and government officials can take away your money, your beautiful wife or daughter if you have one, and any valuable articles in your family home after making up your temperature readings and forcing you into the concentration camp-like hospitals,” Ludepress has told in its live-broadcast.

The city of Wuhan and the country face “wartime conditions”, as said by vice-premier Sun Chunlan, who has been put in charge of the national campaign against the virus and is now on a visit to Wuhan. Sun said: “There must be no deserters, or they will be nailed to the pillar of historical shame forever.”

We know that the CCP leaders who had planned for a biochemical war against humanity shall finally be nailed to the pillar of historical shame. That’s why they have tried all means to cover up the truth and denied international assistance.

Even today, the CCP has tightened its notorious Great Firewall and stopped the free flow of information, not for the benefits of the Chinese people but only for saving the life of the evil dictatorship.

The evil CCP regime is now dealing with public anger over the death of a doctor who was detained and threatened by authorities for spreading early warnings of the illness in December.

Li Wenliang, an ophthalmologist of 34, had been reprimanded by security officials for warning fellow doctors in late December last year about a mystery new disease in Wuhan; he then caught the coronavirus from one of his own patients in January and, despite youth and apparent good health, he died early on Friday morning.

Li was actually one of eight medical professionals in Wuhan who tried to warn colleagues and others when the government did not, but the local police forced them to sign a statement admitting they spread falsehoods.

Bloomberg reports today that citizen reporter Chen Qiushi, who has been covering the virus outbreak from Wuhan went missing yesterday. He is reportedly to have been silenced by the authorities.

Earlier, Chen expressed his worries about human-to-human transmission inside the hospital as all the patients shared the same ward. He noted that the hygiene outside the hospital was also pretty bad — used masks, gloves, and vomit were everywhere.

Since the start of the New Year, the Chinese government has engaged in wide-ranging efforts to suppress information about the coronavirus and the dangers it posed to public health.

The Amnesty reported that “the response to an epidemic has the potential to affect the human rights of millions of people. First and foremost is the right to health, but there are several other rights at stake too.”

“Censorship, discrimination and arbitrary detention have no place in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic,” said Nicholas Bequelin, Regional Director at Amnesty International. “Human rights violations hinder, rather than facilitate, responses to public health emergencies, and undercut their efficiency.”

Most Chinese have long been aware that they are tracked by the world’s most sophisticated system of electronic surveillance. The coronavirus emergency has brought some of that technology out of the shadows, providing the authorities with a justification for sweeping methods of high tech social control.

If a coronavirus patient boards a train, the railway’s “real name” system can provide a list of people sitting nearby, a Reuters report detailed on the surveillance yesterday.

Mobile phone apps can tell users if they have been on a flight or a train with a known coronavirus carrier, and maps can show them locations of buildings where infected patients live.

The episode of Doctor Li’s death has raised longstanding complaints that party officials lie about or cover up disease outbreaks, chemical spills, dangerous consumer products or financial frauds. It is totally disgusting that Chinese citizens can easily be jailed on charges of rumor-mongering or making trouble.

Artificial intelligence and security camera companies like Alibaba (Alipay) and Tencent (Wechat) boast that their systems can scan the streets for people with even low-grade fevers, recognize their faces even if they are wearing masks and report them to the authorities.

While the man-made disaster is getting worse in China, situations outside China do not look optimistic either.

Today, cruise passengers in Japan are being quarantined amid reports of 61 cases. Japanese officials also turned another ship away, the Holland America’s Westerdam. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he suspected some passengers on the vessel had been infected.

In Europe, after four guests on one of its ships were hospitalized to be tested for the new coronavirus, Royal Caribbean announced it is banning all Chinese passport-holders from its ships.

Norwegian Cruises has imposed the strictest measures yet to prevent coronavirus. It said, “Any guest that holds a Chinese, Hong Kong, or Macau passport, will be unable to board any of our ships, regardless of residency.” The company also announced that anyone who has traveled to mainland China or even visited an airport in the country in the 30 days prior to their cruise departure will not be allowed on the ship.

Instead of cleaning up its own mess, the CCP’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying blamed the U.S. of not helping and other western countries of “overreaction”.

In a phone call with President Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping ridiculously urged the U.S. to  “respond reasonably” to the outbreak. He echoed concerns from Chinese officials that some countries are overreacting to the outbreak by placing restrictions on Chinese travelers.

President Trump tweeted on Friday morning he had “a long conversation” earlier in the day with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping regarding the state of coronavirus in the country — calling the dictator “strong, sharp and powerful.”

“[Xi Jinping is] focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus. He feels they are doing very well, even building hospitals in a matter of only days,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He will be successful, especially as the weather starts to warm & the virus hopefully becomes weaker and then gone.”

We know that President Xi shall never be successful so long as he does not allow freedom of speech in China. The Chinese will bring Xi and other CCP criminals to justice after the pandemic is over.

The U.S. is actually helping, in a very human way. Yesterday, the first plane load of U.S. supplies has arrived in China. The Americans have kept a low tone not to “condemn” the CCP government, only to have sympathy on the sufferings of the Chinese people.

The US government said it helped with the effort to deliver nearly 18 tons of medical supplies donated to the Chinese by the American people, including masks, gowns, gauze and respirators.

The Trump administration today announced that it would commit up to $100 million in existing funds to help the World Health Organization, China and other infected countries fight the coronavirus outbreak.

World Health Organization (WHO) officials are holding a press conference to update the public on the new coronavirus outbreak.

The WHO has not been helping. History will have a “tell” about its dirty collusion with the CCP regime.

Everything is just beginning.
