American media continue to disperse the topic of problems with coronavirus in China: TV channel CNN released satellite images taken by Maxar Technologies that allegedly show queues at funeral homes on the outskirts of Beijing and other major Chinese cities.

According to CNN, they have interviews with Chinese citizens who confirm that at the moment it is possible to bury their deceased loved ones in China only after a long wait, which takes from several days to a week. The situation is associated with a large number of deaths from the coronavirus, but the Chinese authorities do not officially recognize the problem.

The surge in COVID-19 cases occurred in China after the authorities abandoned the policy of “zero tolerance” for the coronavirus and lifted a number of quarantine restrictions after protests broke out in several cities in the country.

As part of the new requirements, travelers arriving in China will no longer need to be in quarantine for a long time, but they will have to provide negative tests for CJOVID-19 or a certificate of a recent illness.
