As of May 14, there were 82,929 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in China, with 4,633 deaths. In contrast, at that time, there were more than 1.39 million confirmed cases in the United States and over 84,000 deaths, the highest in the world on both counts. The huge difference has led to many U.S. politicians alleging that China under-reported the numbers. However, other unbiased voices around the world have acknowledged that China has been trans-parent about the statistics and the numbers could not have been fudged.

Passenger Cars Sales of passenger cars in China continued to warm up in April as pent-up demand was unleashed, but the foundation for a “V-shape” rebound is yet to solidify due to the lingering uncertainties caused by the impact of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, industry data showed on May 11. The retail sales of passenger vehicles amounted to 1.43 million units in April, down 5.6 percent year on year but recovering from the 40-percent drop in March and 79-percent fall in February, according to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). Passenger car sales surged 36.6 percent month on month, reversing the usual seasonal trend and suggesting a relatively quick recovery in demand following further domestic containment of the epidemic. While the overseas spread of the virus may have affected consumer confidence, pent-up…
