COVER UP? Coronavirus – Chinese media giant lists death toll at 24,589 but quickly changes to 304 sparking conspiraciesA CHINESE media giant has sparked conspiracy theories after appearing to publish the coronavirus death toll as more than 24,589 - before changing it to 304.
Tencent, the multinational tech company that developed WeChat, reportedly listed figures for the coronavirus on Saturday showing 154,023 were infected.
Tencent's webpage titled 'Epidemic Situation Tracker' was quickly updated to reflect the official figures of 14,446 infected and 304 dead at the time, according to Taiwan News.
The death toll has since risen to 563 in China, with 28,018 cases confirmed in the country.
Screen grabs showing the site's apparently changing figures, have been widely shared online, sparking conspiracy rumours.
Tencent is yet to issue any statement on the matter.
This follows speculation that the Communist Party in Beijing may be hiding the true extent of the damage caused by the deadly virus.
The other erroneous or leaked figures posted included 79,808 suspected cases - four times the official numbers.
Pincong, a Chinese forum with a focus on censored topics, commented on the Tencent figures: "Don't know if this is true, but it is certain that the real figures are higher [than the official ones].
"Because the majority of sufferers in Wuhan have sent their pleadings for help through WeChat, accusing hospitals of refusing to admit them after they had been infected.
"[Therefore], these deaths were not counted into the epidemic statistics. This is enough to show how serious the real situation is."
However, some comments under the Pingcong post suggested that the viral screen grabs could have been digitally altered. Source
“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie
“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie
“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
