The orgy of Corona continues unabated in China. About 80 percent of the population here has come under the grip of infection and the number of dead is increasing continuously. China may have reported 60,000 deaths due to corona since December, but the reality is that there are a lot of dead bodies in the streets and hospitals.
According to media reports, even coffins have fallen short for burial in China and due to high demand, their prices have also increased. Alam is that every day someone or the other is dying in the rural areas, due to which there is a long line outside the crematoriums.
More than 13 thousand deaths in a week
According to China’s chief epidemiologist Wu Zunyao, more than a billion people have been infected since China lifted restrictions in December, accounting for 80 percent of the total population. At the same time, at the end of last week, China recorded 13,000 corona deaths in less than a week, but these deaths occurred in hospitals. The condition of rural areas of China is much worse than this.
Rural areas are not counted in the death toll
The shocking revelation in the media report is that the death figures shared by China are only from urban areas. Due to lack of health facilities in rural areas, there is no counting of deaths due to corona. In many reports, there has been talk of an increase in the number of deaths in rural areas.
Deaths increased three to four times
Deaths have increased three to four times in rural areas of China’s Shanxi province. There is a long queue for the last rites at the crematorium. In such a situation, the work of coffin makers and people associated with the funeral industry has also increased. The increased demand has affected the prices. A local resident says that the cost of arranging funerals has skyrocketed due to the number of deaths due to corona. Local people say that there have been continuous deaths here for the last one month.
