China not free of COVID yet: 48 new infections, 1 death

China had, early in March, claimed credit for controlling the spread of coronavirus promptly even when the world was looking at the pandemic as a creation of Beijing's communist regime

The China-origin virus that snowballed into a pandemic globally has not spared the alleged country of its origin or creation as yet — in contrast to Beijing’s propaganda since early March that it should be credited for controlling coronavirus “promptly”. Health officials of China reported on Tuesday 48 new cases of coronavirus infection. One of the patients has died. This brings the official — albeit censored — figure of COVID deaths in China to a total of 3,305 deaths due to coronavirus.

The National Health Commission (NHC) of China said on Tuesday that no new domestic case of COVID-19 had been reported on the Chinese mainland on Monday. However, during the same period, 48 ‘imported cases’ have taken the tally of the infected in that country tp 711.

Ten out of the new imported cases on 30 March were in Inner Mongolia region of northern China. These were travellers whose flights had been diverted from Beijing to Hohhot, Inner Mongolia’s capital city, in recent days.

Shanghai reported 11 new imported cases. Most of them are Chinese nationals returning from abroad. Beijing reported three new imported infections.

Wuhan, capital of central Hubei province and epicentre of the outbreak in China in December 2019, reported no new infections for the seventh straight day.

The number of positive cases in China has reached 81,518 as of Monday, of which 3,305 people have officially died and 2,161 patients are still under treatment.

In China, 76,052 people have recovered and gone home. After recovery, 282 people were discharged from hospitals on Monday while the number of serious cases fell from 528 to 105. The NHC said 183 people were still suspected of being infected with the virus.

On Monday, Xinhua reported that 682 cases were confirmed, including four deaths in Hong Kong, 39 cases in Macau and 306 in Taiwan. Five of those infected died.

Whereas the Indian government stopped all international flights — and imposed a 21-day lockdown across the country — China is now witnessing an emergence of new cases also from international travellers.

Irony: China now ‘helping’ India

Ironically, the second batch of donations from Chinese charity organisations Jack Ma and Alibaba Foundations arrived in Delhi today. The Indian Red Cross Society received it. The donation includes protective clothes, masks, respirators and ventilators, Sun Weidong, the Chinese envoy to India, informed the press.

According to news agency ANI, Sun sought pride in his assertion that Chinese state-owned companies provided assistance to their Indian partners too. “The Chinese people will stand firmly with the Indian people on the fight against COVID-19 and we’ll get through hard times together,” Sun said.
