New information has come out concerning the spread of the coronavirus in the region of East Turkestan. We are finding out that when reporters go to ask health officials how many people they believe have been infected in the region, they are told that it is a "state secret." This is outrageous news because by not releasing such statistics, it is hard for the public to know what is going on and how to make decisions concerning their family and friends in the region.
According to Radio Free Asia(RFA), as of February 2, 2020, 24 people have been confirmed to have the coronavirus infection in the Uyghur region. Furthermore, official reporting is showing that there is an increase in the supply of masks to that region, around 400,000 masks and 40,000 gloves. What is even more concerning is the number of test kits, around 1,000, sent to the Uyghur region. In previous articles I have mentioned the detainment of millions of Uyghurs in what the Chinese like to call "reeducation camps" due to the people harboring "extreme beliefs."
Another concern surrounding this outbreak is that crematoriums are now having to run 24/7 to keep up with the amount of dead bodies coming from hospitals and private homes. As reported by the Daily Mail, Wuhan workers are complaining that they go very long times without food or water, due to the lack of resources. Once you use a protective suit and take it off, you are no longer able to use the same suit again. Due to a lack of suits, they are encouraged to continue wearing them for longer periods of time to reduce how much they need to change into new protective suits.
Back to these notions of state secret for the number of infected people in East Turkestan. Don't you think that if China was really concerned about containing this outbreak, they would be open to sharing information with the world so that everyone could take proper precautions to handling this outbreak? In general, China is a secretive nation and there are many things which they consider "state secrets", which in reality is just a form of hiding information to better control the masses. When reporters are not able to go to health officials to get accurate information about the coronavirus outbreak, then it weakens the free flow of information. Hindering this information flow is a big part of the Chinese Communist Party's(CCP) strategy to only trust information coming from state media. The problem with this is that the state media will only say things that reflects positively on itself. They will never speak the truth about the horrible atrocities being committed to the Uyghur people. For example, there has been news about the underground networks that provide transplant organs to willing wealthy people. These organs have been discovered to be sourced from Uyghur Muslims.
Many peoples family members just go missing out of nowhere and are never seen again. They are told that they are being taken to reeducation camps but when asked how long till they can see their family members again, they are met with cold stares. This evil practice is one we cannot easily see into because as I have reported in previous articles, reporters are not allowed into these detention centers. They are provided with images of people in classroom settings just undergoing innocent reeducation and assimilation into Chinese culture. This is all just done to distract the people from what is really going on, and is a signal to others that if they disclose what is going on, they are exposing state secrets. In a land that believes in communism and not dissenting from the political frame of mind, you would not be surprised to find people adhering to keeping the disinformation about what goes on in these detention centers. As we have seen, in relation to the coronavirus, public health officials know exactly what to say when confronted with reporters searching for the truth. They all fall in line and say "Since you are not an official from the government, I do not feel obligated to tell you anything about the operations of any of our facilities." This is something of great concern which I will continue to follow closely because justice is always worth fighting for.
Stop the use of slave labor in order to produce the goods and services we currently enjoy. Many big companies such as Apple and H&M use these factories where Uyghurs are forced to work. Support the cause to end slave labor.
