BEIJING (Reuters) - Mainland China had 13 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infections on Tuesday, the country's National Health Commission said, down from 21 cases a day earlier.

 

That brings the total number of confirmed cases in mainland China so far to 80,894, the health authority said in a statement on Wednesday.

I suspect that they are telling whoppers!  China is very sensitive about allowing secrets out of their control.  There are probably thousands every week infected.

Yes, just telling lies to the world as well as internally.

 

The real situation inside China is that SINOPEC is cancelling crude oil deliveries for April.  No oil = no fuel, no plastics for factories.
