As Chinese authorities struggle to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus, they're also working to silence the growing number of critics of the government's crisis plans. Censors have been erasing critical social media sites. At least two outspoken citizen journalists have disappeared. Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin are among those whose whereabouts are unknown. And citizens were outraged at the death of Wuhan Doctor Li Wenliang, who raised the alarm about the virus. Meanwhile, China has reported 97 more deaths from the Corona virus and more than two thousand new infections, claiming these are the lowest figures since January. Officials also predict the epidemic could be over by April. But the World Health Organization disagrees, arguing it's too early to say whether infections have peaked. They're warning the outbreak poses a global threat potentially worse than terrorism. And people in and outside of China are beginning to question the accuracy of the information they are getting.

Wuhan(2020) What will happen to our boys ? - The situation in Wuhan is under control, I have been told its an equivalent of a flu virus. Nope Wuhan is on fire, every virus is like a bullet penetrating everything in its path through any surgical mask. Cut the facebook, contain the spread of misinformation. Do you want to know the truth ? - there is no truth.

If medical professionals & legal professionals are going "rogue" against their government, then we should be listening. They both know the risks associated with what they were doing but were willing to risk it so that the rest of the world knew the truth. So anybody saying that unless we live there, we have no idea what we're talking about, we know that 4-6 of the worst plague-like animal-human viruses have come out of your country and killed thousands of people. More each time a new strain comes out. We all have many of your countrymen living in our countries as citizens ad even more visiting as tourists each year. A lot of our countries now have mounting numbers of infected people. I have watched this via media since it first was reported, which was closer to the end of December rather than the beginning as is now said to be the case. I have watched the numbers of infection and deaths pretty much double by the day x 2. There are thousands dead now and its only 16Feb. End of January, 100 turned to 280 turned to 400 within 5 days. Our own govts didnt close borders to travel until end of Jan. Thats how we got our own cases manifest. Chinese NY meant more travel btw there and our countries. Clearly the govt there in China thinks the rest of the world can be on a "needs to know basis"......and is selective in their "truth". We will never know the truth because the commos dont share anything. The whistleblowers are disappearing (dead? jailed? assassinated?) under suspicious circumstances and the commos wont acknowledge or reveal why or where. If they had nothing to hide, they'd be transparent. They arent. So the rest of the world is now in damage control and isolating your country so it can eat itself inside out until (if) this thing is contained, or it kills its entire population....whichever comes first. The mind boggles on the conditions and hows and whys an animal borne disease transfers to a human and then kills them....but its China's specialty. They can keep it and their secrets.

It's very sad that people who tell the truth and strive to fight for the truth. Hope this man is alright however honestly it's not a great thing to be filming things like this and blowing it up on the internet since all it does is fear monger ordinary and normal Chinese people it doesn't really do any good since those who are infected are suffering yes and I pray for their health and speedy full recovery but most people just need to know to stay in doors, disinfect well, don't go to places with many people, and wear masks when necessary, they don't need to be shown videos of people dying in hospitals or body bags why would they need to know such things, it wouldn't help anyone since they wouldn't be able to help and hospitals wouldn't be able to magically save everyone. People need to be more mature and just do their part properly. It doesn't do anything and anyone any good really since people would only go crazy and disrupt social order and individual order. YES HOSPITALS ARE UNDEREQUIPPED, YES HOSPITALS ARE RUNNING OUT OF SPACE, YES THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE INFECTED AND BECOMING INFECTED, YES MANY BRAVE DOCTORS AND MEDICAL STAFF HAVE BECOME UNFORTUNATELY INFECTED BUT WHAT CAN YOU GODDAMN DO?! Reporting on it won't make supplies automatically appear, it won't make people magically better. What China needs now more than ever is not "tRAnspaRenCy" it's SUPPLIES AND HELP. Posting and reporting on these things are obviously going to be shocking and terrifying, wow who knew viruses kill people wow who knew that it would be a very sad time like all these reporters and "citizen journalists" as people call them do is create mass panic and social unrest, definitely not what you want during a time of crisis and a time of a super contagious virus outbreak. Come on China come on wuhan!

What if the ones missing are actually forced "quarantined" but in a bad way. What if they actually put the coronavirus in their bodies and let them die, do you think that's what happened to the doctor?? Or what will happen to the others???

China is trying to cover up something grave against it's own people & the world. They might be experimenting with a whole new lethal biology warfare weapon! This Coronavirus could be man-made! Hope the international community with the strength of the UN could do something to shed some light on this .

The Chinese sometimes say: I'm not afraid of death, I'm afraid of a life unable to die. In ancient times they had a really good way of punishing serious offenders: they lopped off all four limbs, made the person blind deaf, and dumb and kept the poor guy alive.

My Prayers to the people of Wuhan, may god protect them. I urge the people of China being indoor and taking every precaution is great, but at the same time "Be on you knees and cry unto Lord Jesus Christ to eradicate this virus from China and the world, we are praying for you, but I request all my brothers and sisters of China to please pour out all your grief, anxiety and the suffering you are facing due to this out break to our Lord Jesus he will surely answer your prayers. The Bible says Psalms 145:9 " God is good to everyone and has compassion on all he made". We are all his creation irrespective of where we live and what religion we follow but the truth is we are Lords Jesus creation. Again the Bible say in Psalms 145:17-20 "The Lord is righteous in all he does, merciful in all his act. He is near to those who call to him, who call to him with sincerity. He supplies the needs of those who honour him, he hears their cries and saves them. He protects everyone who loves him, but he will destroy the wicked. Lord has give us this promise more then 2000 years ago, we have to just claim this promise of the Lord by being on our knees. My dearest brothers and sisters of China please cry unto to the Lord to bring happiness back to your lifes. God Bless you all and God Bless China.
