VIDEO CLAIMED THAT MORE THAN 90,000 PEOPLE HAD BEEN INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS IN CHINA

A video circulated online apparently by a nurse named Jin Hui in Hubei, describing a far more serious situation in Wuhan than alleged by Chinese officials. The video claimed that more than 90,000 people had been infected with the virus in China.

However, the BBC noted that, unlike its English subtitles, the woman claims to be neither a nurse nor a doctor in the video, and that her suit and mask do not match those used by the Hubei health care staff. The video’s claim of 90,000 infected cases is not noted to be substantiated.
