The number of Covid deaths in China has risen to 9,000 a day, according to a data company,, an Australian-based publication, reported.

The report also said, “UK-based research firm, Airfinity, has more than doubled the number of people it estimates are dying from Covid in China as infections soar. This announcement comes after Beijing lifted draconian health measures against Covid-19 in China.” November has been going on for years.”

Protests erupted across China over a harsh lockdown after 10 people died in an apartment fire. It is alleged that firefighters were prevented from entering the apartment complex due to the quarantine order.

The country reversed its Covid policy due to widespread protests in its nine cities.

“Airfinity says its model is based on data from China’s regional provinces prior to making changes to the reporting of infections, combined with case growth rates from other countries. there was no Covid before when they lifted the restrictions,” the report said.

The total number of deaths in China related to Covid in December could reach 100,000, with at least 18.6 million infections. By mid-January, there could be as many as 3.7 million COVID-19 cases in a single day. By January 23, a total of 584,000 deaths are expected in China.

According to, “Beijing is accused of hiding medical information so it is difficult to assess the exact numbers. However, China’s National Health Commission (NHC) last week confirmed it. that the country’s current outbreak is the largest the world has ever seen.”

“More than a billion people in China could have been infected with Covid by March. And more than 30% of the population could have been infected, which is up to 400 million people,” reported The Australian.

The virus is continuing to spread rapidly in China. However, workers are required to go to work unless they have severe symptoms.

Since China eased its controversial Covid-free policy last month, its second-largest economy has been struggling to cope with a rapid rise in coronavirus cases around the country, which burden on the country’s healthcare system.

British virologist and biologist Jonathan Latham, Executive Director of the Biosciences Resource Project, says that Beijing is not open and transparent about the number of cases or deaths and only has data. Only accurate data can make the right decisions in China and elsewhere.

“China is not open and transparent about the number of infections or the number of deaths. However, this is true for many countries. However, it would be nice to have really accurate information on those points, because Only accurate and timely data can make the right decisions in China and elsewhere.Good data will also test the hypothesis that newer variants like Omicron have an inherent mortality rate. lower,” Latham told ANI.
