U.S. President Joe Biden raised concern about China's handling of its COVID-19 outbreak hours after the World Health Organisation said it was under-reporting virus deaths, comments likely to provoke a response from Beijing on Thursday.

The United States is one of more than a dozen countries that have imposed restrictions on travellers from China since it scrapped stringent COVID controls last month that had shielded its 1.4 billion population from the virus for three years.

The state-run Global Times said in an article on Wednesday that COVID infections had peaked in several cities including the capital, Beijing, citing interviews with doctors. China reported one new COVID-19 death in the mainland for Wednesday, compared with five a day earlier, bringing its official death toll to 5,259.With one of the lowest COVID death tolls in the world, China has been routinely accused of under-reporting infections and deaths for political reasons.

Well, the WHO is able to 'rule' over our freedom and change the 'amendments' literally over night – deteriorating every aspect of humanity. BUT is not having a full picture of the situation in China. No wonder that SARS-CoV-2 'escaped' from the Wuhan lab intentionally. 💀💀💀
