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.

We can not even imagine number of dead, there is a curfew so nobody is on the street, so even if 20,000 people did passed away nobody can tell

People still think the guys who died got the virus. It was a piece of lead that did them in. Count on it.

Today is Feb 17, 2020 and they say there are 1750 dead right now. I don't believe it. The dead people are probably more than 5000.

The limitation of free speech and lack of transparency in China and reports of journalists there disappearing, that report on the COVID-19, makes the Chinese government extremely untrustworthy. This behavior only adds to the hysteria of the rest of the world and feeds into conspiracy theories. If the Chinese Government is not downplaying the danger of the Covid-19, then why doesn’t President Xi Jinping go to visit Wuhan? President Xi Jinping is displaying himself as a super weak leader for the world to see. He is a coward and in all essence a weak little man. It will probably take a spread of the COVID-19 virus in a more transparent country, for the world to understand it. Then President Xi Jinping himself, will go on and live in shame for eternity.

I prayed for these passengers to come home. Because I was afraid they would die alone. I thank God they are close to their families. Because we need to feel secured. With family, and the Lord. I praise the Lord. Thank you Jesus. We have to pray for the rest of our people. And also for the mercy of God for the world.

Every government in the world, especially China and USA, will contain the real numbers of COVID-19 deaths to protect the world market from crashing. President Trump needs the economy to run great for re-election.

Looks like China's population control strategy especially the elderly and people with less immunity (also a bio weapon testing on its own population). The Chinese CCP is a ruthless party, which will do anything for its ambition like Cultural revolution killing millions, Tienanmen square massacre killing 10000+ college students and so on.

I have a feeling that this virus is not natural, I strongly believe it could be a military grade virus designed to wipe out other countries, But the virus got released by accident

On FB, a post/email, put on by a Chinese man, who said he is high up in the Chinese Military, he says that it is not corona virus, that the government are covering up, that it is a deadly man made virus, that the government had made , that they planned to spray the virus from Drones in Honk Kong, that it was supposed to dumb down the citizens, stop them from protesting,make them compliant..but the virus escaped, and it is rampant, and it makes people go mad, and suffer internal bleeding, melt down, and that there is no cure, he says that the so called new hospitals are not just hospitals, I think he said there were ten, that he was taken to see one in the city, and the first area had rows of beds, with patients, the second huge room was full of bodies, floor to ceiling, and there were patients suffering with this virus, who being beaten and forced to drag the bodies into the back room, where they had to push them into a furnace..as there are too many for them to cope with...He said because of his position, he and his wife and only son, were given special bio germ warfare masks,as normal masks do not work with this, but he said his little son is dying from this virus...He said, he was horrified by what he has seen, and must warn everyone..he said he will be shot if found out... this needs looking into, but who would be brave enough to go there...

Matthew 24 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ (happening); and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars (happening): see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences (Corona virus?,), and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Much more going on but from Jesus himself, the end is not yet there is still time my friends

We can all argue about our liberties to insult one another freely like mad dogs, however an absolute "free speech" just causes disaster, depression and disorder. The part that would offend me is the freedom to report on matters such as corruption. China is an orderly country, something we desperately need in the West with our dysfunctional démocraties plagued by individuals thriving for their own self desires. Sigh. At the end of the day. There's no perfect system. Heaven isn't a Democracy.

Showing footages from Chinese media and open by "these are images the Chinese government doesn't want you to see"... Just a habit of saying so, I guess?

Before the Chinese state prohibited Uighur women from wearing the hijab, and now God brings the corona virus as a gift ... and because of that gift Chinese citizens are forced to wear clothing that resembles a hijab to protect themselves from the corona virus, along with masks that resemble the niqab ..
