GOP Senator Ben Sasse confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon that more people have died in China from the Chinese Coronavirus than in the United States.
The United States does not currently have more coronavirus-related deaths than China, despite media claims, according to a senator on the Select Committee on Intelligence.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R., Neb.), who sits on the committee that deals with classified intelligence, said the Chinese Communist Party continues to lie about the actual death toll from coronavirus in its own country. While the senator would not discuss specific intelligence, citing classification reasons, he said information he has viewed shows the United States does not surpass China in terms of deaths.
“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” Sasse said on Wednesday in a statement sent to the Washington Free Beacon. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime. Beijing’s garbage propaganda shouldn’t be taken seriously by the World Health Organization, by independent journalists, or by the American epidemiologists who are going to beat this terrible virus.”
China has reported some 81,500 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to publicly available data. The U.S. infection number stands at 191,000 with more than 4,000 deaths, making it the worldwide leader if the public numbers are to be trusted.
This puts egg on the face of the Mainstream Press. They have continued to write stories pushing the lie that the US is leading the World in Chinese Coronavirus cases.
I understand China doesn’t care about its people and is covering this up. But even if China did all they could to stop the spread they would still have likely have had the most cases due to just their population size.
It is amazing how the Media will play so laughably ignorant just to attack the Trump Administration.
