An exclusive from CNN reveals leaked documents, exposing China’s mishandling of COVID-19 during the early stages. Early on in the pandemic, President Trump stated his concerns that China was not giving the full story of the impact of the virus on their nation or health care system, and he was roundly dismissed and blamed for the pandemic. These leaked documents show that Trump was correct in his assertion. In a report marked “internal document, please keep confidential,” health authorities in Hubei listed a total of 5,918 newly detected cases on February 10. This is more than double the official public number of confirmed cases at the time. This was part of a larger operation to downplay the severity of the virus.
