Photos and videos circulating all over media shows the clear picture of China's struggles to contain the virus. But, China has a different story to tell.
China's foreign ministry spokesperson, Wang Wenbin said that the hype and manipulation is far away from tha fact and the situation is under control.
"Currently the development of China's epidemic situation is overall predictable and under control," Wang Wenbin said Wednesday.
"Hyping, smearing and political manipulation with ulterior motives can't stand the test of facts," Wang added, calling Western media reporting on China's Covid surge "completely biased".
China's Center for Disease Prevention and Control reported 5,231 new Covid cases and three deaths nationwide Wednesday, likely a drastic undercount since people are no longer required to declare infections to authorities.
