China coronavirus conspiracy: New evidence suggests higher death toll than announced

The Chinese government data says 2,535 died from the virus in the city of Wuhan. However, there are reports of much larger numbers of urns being suddenly required.

According to investigative outlet Caixin, when mortuaries in the city opened up for relatives to collect remains, people had to wait for five hours.

One photo shows a truck delivering urns to the mortuary.

The outlet claims the driver said they were delivering 2,500 urns – the same as the day before.

According to Shanghaiist photos from the mortuary show seven stacks of 500 urns each, which would put the figure of urns at 3,500.

Wuhan has eight mortuaries.

April 4 will this year mark the Qingming Festival or Tomb Sweeping Day, which is a national holiday.

Families visit the tombs of their ancestors and clean them whilst leaving offerings.

Reports claim the urns are being distributed at a rate of 500 per day until the festival.

Reporters at Bloomberg attempted to call funeral homes to ascertain how many urns they had waiting to be collected but were either told by the home that information was not held or they did not have permission to give it.
