Coronavirus whistleblowers disappear in China | DW News

  • As Chinese authorities struggle to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus, they're also working to silence the growing number of critics of the government's crisis plans. Censors have been erasing critical social media sites. At least two outspoken citizen journalists have disappeared. Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin are among those whose whereabouts are unknown. And citizens were outraged at the death of Wuhan Doctor Li Wenliang, who raised the alarm about the virus. Meanwhile, China has reported 97 more deaths from the Corona virus and more than two thousand new infections, claiming these are the lowest figures since January. Officials also predict the epidemic could be over by April. But the World Health Organization disagrees, arguing it's too early to say whether infections have peaked. They're warning the outbreak poses a global threat potentially worse than terrorism. And people in and outside of China are beginning to question the accuracy of the information they are getting.

    most of them just died in their home or died before the virus test came out, and they sent the body straight to the cremation. these numbers weren't counted into the death toll.
    a 1.3 billion population country has lower confirmed cases and death toll than Italy? lol, i doubt it.

    I do not think it is right those two citizens were apprehended and disappeared..but I also believe the CCP will not allow foreign reporters in because some foreigners come in with a negative perspective that may result in biased reporting.

    Freedom of Speech.. As an American, thinking about my basic constitutional rights... I feel blessed. China needs Reform... although I'm sure the communists think the same thing of us... that we need reform. Humans are born to be free... not property or statistics... I am very sickened to hear of the Social Score they give citizens see how well they conform to the Party..

    China is at fault for their lacklustre response to the virus and censorship.
    The USA is also at fault but for their shoddy medical system and excessive greed.
    I don't know which is worse...

  • The Electric Wrench

    Just weird to me... you would think the higher powers of the world would come against the China communist government and slay them in the streets... what is wrong with people.... can't people not live in harmony..... due to so much greed and hunger for control in this world we see the things that are going on and it's all due to a number of people at the top, their hunger for power and control.... one ant is not a threat ...but 7 billion ants could devastate their oppressors.... the choice is ours.... the power is also ours....

    Whistleblowers play a key role in society....but people weigh in when it is not about Assange and Snowden...why because mainstream media will mention these cases once or twice and then make the people forget them...but everyday mainstream media will play the old record of other countries/governments are bad....this crisis will be a true test to may countries independent of their geographic location, beliefs and politics.....lets hope we all play fair, to not accept the crushing of whisteblowers ANYWHERE with the SAME enthusiasm.

    The virus I'm pretty much 💯 certain has come from the biological sciences laboratory in Wuhan , I think it has been leaked before it was meant to be , I believe it's still in its infancy stage which is why more people are living through it than there should have been if it was perfected the death rate would have been much higher than that ,
    Deffo a strategic move by China

    This is the first wave. Virus, make countries panic. Stock market collapse. Prices drop, countries struggle to maintain. China then buys up as much stock as they can. Oil prices drop. China buys up. Then countries have no money left due to the struggles. Second wave, China now control stocks around the world. Wave 3 North Korea launch and China invades as America fights back. Its WW3.
