Watched a few vids (link below) about COMAC and China's past attempts
I got as far as him saying that the plane only had an hour's flight duration due to being made of "heavier aluminum" and kind of threw up in my mouth.
Now if he really knew his stuff, he'd know that it should have been aricraft quality military grade billet, then it would have been light enough.
There ARE thousands of people dying in hospitals, though, unless the Chinese government can't be believed either.
Nope. These days you have to read very carefully.
There are something like 10 million deaths per year in China. That makes about 880,000 per month. What the government said
was that about 60,000 of them tested positive for the current covid. That would be approximately 7%.
What they did not
say was, there were 60,000 more
deaths than usual that month. What the gubbermint actually said was, of the 900,000 people who died this last month, 60,000 had covid. But they did not say they died of it.
On a personal note, everyone I know has now had it. Starting in maybe late november ? EVERYONE got it. I even did. About four days feeling icky in bed. I didn't get aches and pains, some people did. Mostly what I got was a sore throat and a low-grade fever. Didn't even throw up (thank god, I hate that). Everyone I know got it, within about three weeks. Went through here like shit through a tin horn. Luckily it's not the same as it was three years ago or we'd mostly be dead. Me for sure, I guess I'm old. The mirror claims that anyhow.
For some reason it fits the current propaganda campaign to infer that millions of people are dying every day in China from covid, and they are hiding it. I do not know what this is intended to achieve but it's not true.
Something you probaly do not know : at this time there are NO journalists in China. They have not started issuing J visas again. J is for journalist. So all those bylines BEIJING are an outright lie.
And think for another second, if someone were to sneak around on the wrong visa and attempt to interview people or take photos in a hospital
(how long do you thin people would allow that ? Of rooms full of dying people ? yeah right, just try it) they'd be deported before you could write your name in the snow.
Okay, I do not expect anyone to believe me on faith. A few days ago I went the long way to the yoga place (girl friend is addicted) and took some photos of different hospitals (there's a lot, 26 million people in the city). Huashan hospital (you can look it up maybe ? it's kind of famous), then the children's hospital on nanjing lu, then the district hospital a couple blocks farther down the road and another one over south of plaza 66. Here is front door to huashan
jing'an clinic counter
jing'an district hospital
and this one is over on julu lu, close to shaanxi lu
So. Why are they lying through their teeth ? I have no idea. Straight out discredit china ? No one can prove them wrong at the moment, so they can say whatever they want ?
I don't know the backstory but I do know they are full of shit. Look at the photos.
Friday is new years, the place is getting kind of excited, feels pretty happy, most of the country people already left for the villages, hard to get snacks, all the little stores closed for the holiday, lots of activity, fun. No, there's NOT "thousands of people dying", the morgues are NOT "overlfowing", what can I say ? It's the same crap as Amnesty International pulled with the Iraqi army throwing babies out of incubators, except that girl not only didn't work there but had never even been ?
Outright lies. What can I say ? Believe them or believe your eyes. If you don't believe, say what you want, if it's within a decent walk I'll take whatever photo you want (that's not an invasion of privacy).
