New Delhi: A new data leak from a military-run university indicates that China is hiding the real figures of COVID-19 cases. As per the database leaked from the National University of Defence Technology in Changsha city, China could have 640,000 cases instead of 84,000.

While China has officially reported just 84,029 cases there is widespread scepticism over this figure due to Beijing’s lack of transparency over the matter.

The Dataset of Coronavirus cases and deaths were leaked to Foreign Policy and 100 Reporters.

According to FP, “the school publishes a data tracker for the Coronavirus: The online version matches with the leaked information, except it is far less detailed—it shows just the map of cases, not the distinct data.”
