The Financial Times reports Coronavirus Cases in China Exceed Sars as Public Anger Rises.
Officially Admitted Stats as Noted by FT
- Admitted Infections: 9,692
- Admitted Death Toll: 213
- Admitted Suspected Cases: 15,238
- Admitted Monitoring: 102,427
The FT reported that broadcaster Tang Zhihong, head of the local centre for disease control, posted a 4-minute clip on the coronavirus that was viewed 35 million times. Tang could not (or would not) answer basic questions.
“Our taxpayers’ money goes to support this group of good-for-nothings,” said a top comment on the video, garnering 100,000 likes.
Ms. Tang was relieved of her duties within hours.
