I love these voice of the people posts. Cuts to the chase and makes more sense than the NYT or US health agencies. I would add that there is mounting evidence that China and its neighbors had covid or a precursor of it in 2018-19, maybe sooner; another version of this is much of the world had it. This hypothesis explains China’s very low covid mortality and infection rates. It also explains why so many people elsewhere, including USA, have prior immunity to covid.
That said, statistics from China are generally never true and never can be relied on. They may have had much larger mortality and death rates. Another way to look at this is China did a planned release of covid or similar in 2018-19 to inoculate their population before releasing covid-19 in fall of 2019.
