They have been lying from the beginning, and are lying now.
Wuhan is open now. Enough people have had the disease and recovered thus they have “herd immunity.”
Before Wuhan was locked down citizens of Wuhan traveled throughout China and the world. This disease is still burning in China. It will continue to do so until the whole nation has herd immunity.
The death rate from this virus is about 0.66 percent when one factors in all the cases that do not need treatment.
For herd immunity one needs about 50% of the community to have been infected and recovered. China could have 5 million deaths before this is over.
