The disagreement smacks of China’s aggressive approach to dominate the region by any means necessary.
Several days ago, news broke that a new virus hitting the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan was worse than the Wuhan Coronavirus.
An “unknown pneumonia” that is “much deadlier” than COVID-19 has killed scores of people in Kazakhstan, according to an ominous warning from the Chinese embassy in the country. In a statement to its citizens who live in Kazakhstan, the embassy claimed the mysterious disease has killed 1,772 people this year—including Chinese citizens—and 628 of those deaths took place in June.
The claims have not been verified by the Kazakh government, according to CNN. “Kazakhstani Health Department and other agencies are conducting comparative research and have not defined the nature of the pneumonia virus,” the embassy statement said, adding: “This disease is much deadlier than COVID-19.” A Kazakh news agency reportedly cited government data showing that hundreds of people are being hospitalized with the unknown disease every day.
Kazakhstan’s health ministry officially dismissed the Chinese government’s warning of a strange pneumonia, saying the information given by the Chinese embassy was “incorrect”.
