China’s indeterminable covid situation, statistical unknowables, and a drive to encourage more births

It is impossible to know what is going on in China. When the zero-covid policy ended, officially almost no one got covid. Then we heard reports that 90% of Henan Province had covid with 10% of that figure seriously ill. This video is a good lesson in how to understand Chinese statistics and news reports. Basically, you can’t know and you can’t even guess what is happening. In general, this is true of almost everything of importance in China. Information is guarded, fudged, ignored, and fabricated constantly. ABN
