We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim? The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths. This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table. Shame! World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
