(TNS) The American Left and their mainstream media allies all seemed absolutely giddy when the U.S. coronavirus infection rate and death toll surpassed those in China.

But the problem with always rooting against your own country is that to do so often requires suspending reality.

No one who is familiar with how China operates believes that it’s ‘official’ coronavirus infection rate and death toll are accurate. The Chinese government has been caught several times now fudging official numbers, as in dramatically underestimating them.

Moreover, residents of Wuhan City, the epicenter for the outbreak, are also uniquely positioned to call out their own government’s lies regarding the outbreak.

“The city has seven large funeral homes, and each has been returning the cremated remains of approximately 500 people to their families every day, and yet, the official government figures put the total death count around 2,500,” writes Leah Barkoukis at Townhall.

Seven funeral homes currently serve Wuhan — a huge conurbation of three cities: Hankou, Wuchang and Hanyang.

Social media users have been doing some basic math to figure out their daily capacity, while the news website reported that 5,000 urns had been delivered by a supplier to the Hankou Funeral Home in one day alone — double the official number of deaths.

Some social media posts have estimated that all seven funeral homes in Wuhan are handing out 3,500 urns every day in total.

Funeral homes have informed families that they will try to complete cremations before the traditional grave-tending festival of Qing Ming on April 5, which would indicate a 12-day process beginning on March 23.

 Such an estimate would mean that 42,000 urns would be given out during that time. 

“It can’t be right … because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died?” one Wuhan resident told RFA last week.

“They started distributing ashes and starting interment ceremonies on Monday,” he said.

There are other estimates putting China’s coronavirus casualty rate far higher than its “official” count, according to RFA:

Another popular estimate is based on the cremation capacity of the funeral homes, which run a total of 84 furnaces with a capacity over 24 hours of 1,560 urns city-wide, assuming that one cremation takes one hour.

This calculation results in an estimated 46,800 deaths.

“Anyone looking at that figure will realize, anyone with any ability to think,” one Wuhan resident said of the official figure. “What are they talking about [2,535] people?”

“Seven crematoriums could get through more than that [in a single day].”

At one point, the Communist regime trucked in crematorium workers from around the country, where funeral homes were offering as much as $143 per hour.

We can also use the ‘smell test’ — as in, if it smells like BS, it probably.

We’re being asked to believe that the Chinese are better at controlling the spread of a virus than we are — that their medical system and response systems are superior. That’s simply not true.

So if coronavirus is inflicting this many casualties on our country, we have to believe that coronavirus was much harder on the Chinese than the lying Communist government is admitting.
