Jiao Yahui, director of the Department of Medical Affairs of #China‘s National Health Commission: in 2022, about 8% of people in #China infected with #Omicron had #pneumonia.
If 60% of people are infected now, then 67 M have pneumonia.
This broadcast seems authoritative and reasonable and is likely to be an accurate description of what is happening. The covid infection rate in China is very high right now and since China has such a large population concentrated in large cities, when 8% of those infected have pneumonia as well, a great number of people are affected.
