The Anhui Health Commission issued an epidemic report, saying that from 00:00-24:00 on March 1, 2020, there were no new confirmed cases and no new suspected cases.
However, according to the official website of the Health and Health Commission of Hefei City, the capital city of Anhui Province, the Second Hospital of Hefei reported a case of Covid-19 infection– Mr. Xu, male, 43 years old, an employee from Anhui Guofeng Plastic Industry Co., Ltd. Living at Ren Cai Yuan Community, Yaohai District of Hefei. This absurd phenomenon stems from a recent decision by the National Health and Health Commission to exclude those who have no symptoms from the statistics of confirmed patients.
Therefore, according to regulations, asymptomatic infection is not included in the report, that is, people who have no clinical symptoms such as fever and cough, but those who have tested positive for Covid-19 are not included in the report.
Thus, the question arises: how many asymptomatic virus spreaders are free walking now? Is the current data report policy is going to kill more lives by misleading citizens and international travelers?
