Dept. of Homeland Security report states China hid coronavirus’ severity to hoard supplies

U.S. officials believe China covered up the extent of the coronavirus outbreak — and how contagious the disease is — to stock up on medical supplies needed to respond to it, intelligence documents show.

Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world in early January, according to a four-page Department of Homeland Security report dated May 1

The report also says China held off informing the World Health Organization that the coronavirus “was a contagion” for much of January so it could order medical supplies from abroad — and that its imports of face masks and surgical gowns and gloves increased sharply.

Those conclusions are based on the 95% probability that China’s changes in imports and export behavior were not within normal range, according to the report.

The posse of car thieves has stolen 46 cars worth $1.1 million.

Police didn’t say why the orders were denied, but the N.C. Department of Public Safety has said it’s trying to decrease the number of youth in detention during the coronavirus pandemic by utilizing electronic monitoring instead.”
