BEIJING (Reuters) - Mainland China reported 32 new confirmed cases of the coronavirus, down from 39 cases a day earlier, the National Health Commission said on Tuesday.

 

All of the new confirmed cases reported on Monday involved travellers arriving from overseas, bringing the overall number of imported infections so far to 983, the health authority said in its statement.

 

The total number of confirmed cases in mainland China stood at 81,740 as of Monday, according to the authority.

I believe their current figures, however the total figures need to add a zero on the back.

The BBC on their website reported today ZERO new deaths in Mainland China. THis gives a completely different view of how China is - the new cases are all people who migrated or were connected to people who came from abroad.

 

Here is the BBC report:

 

 

The first day with zero new reported coronavirus deaths since the National Health Commission started publishing daily figures is no doubt a cause for hope in China and even across the world.

In a way it doesn’t matter if the figure is real. There has been much debate about the veracity of this country’s coronavirus statistics. Even if the overall number of infections and deaths is under-reported, the trend seems instructive.

Why? Because the trend matches reality in so many ways.

Interestingly, China’s Communist Party-controlled media is not reporting the first 24 hours without fatalities with any great fanfare. The subject isn’t even a key trending subject on Chinese social media platforms. 

It was the same when we had the first day with no new homegrown infections. This either means Chinese media outlets know too well that there are flaws in the accounting here or, more likely, that the Party knows there are flaws in its accounting so it’s ordered a cautious presentation. Either way, in the end, it’s probably neither here nor there. 

Look at the trend. In the trend there is good news.
