Reuters: Journalists covering the coronavirus epidemic disappear in China


US Congressman Jim Banks is seeking an investigation into the disappearance of Chinese journalists who covered the epidemic of coronavirus infection COVID-19 in China. This was reported by Reuters.


It is noted that on March 31, 2020, the congressman representing the Republican Party wrote a letter to the US State Department. He asked the US Foreign Office to appeal to Beijing to investigate the disappearance of three Chinese journalists who “exposed the impact of COVID-19 in Wuhan.”

Banks is interested in the fate of Chinese citizens Fang Bing, Chen Quishi and Li Zehua. They allegedly went missing after they shot a video and published it on the Internet. The video showed crowded hospitals and the bodies of the dead, folded in a minibus.

All three of these people understood the personal risk associated with independent reporting of coronavirus in China, but they did it anyway

Banks wrote, suggesting that the Chinese government "imprisoned them - or worse."

At the same time, spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying has already said that she does not quite understand the allegations. She clarified that China has acted "openly and transparently" throughout the viral crisis.

I am curious why lawmakers are focusing on other countries when the US faces a massive pandemic. And what they said is completely based on fabricated information

Chunying said at a daily press briefing on April 2, 2020.

They (US lawmakers - ed.) Are better off using time to do something specific for their citizens, save their lives and protect their health.

- added a spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Reuters noticed that censorship policy China has come under scrutiny following claims by Internet critics that Beijing is hiding real information.

    US Congressman Jim Banks Seeks Investigation

    Jim would be better off about his sailors.

    The Pentagon has decided not to evacuate servicemen from the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, on which more than 70 crew members have already contracted the coronavirus.

    Has the State Department stolen, or is the "Englishwoman" crap? Who else do you think? There is no one else, the ends, I suppose, want to go into the water.

      Well, propagandists from Reuters began to disappear

      They do a good solid job, they are quoted by all the media in the world. This is not Satellite or TASS.

    I love liberal humor. Each joke is a whole fan of all sorts of mental deviations and diseases, a treasure for a psychiatrist.

        We ourselves are women, but we don’t like the piano, it’s a very slippery instrument.

      I don't know what you mean by the word "liberal", but the psychiatrist certainly has a place to work here.

    Reuters: Journalists covering the coronavirus epidemic disappear in China.

    Forgot to add, covering the epidemic of coronavirus in a light favorable to the United States and its puppets. Yes, it will be rewarded to everyone deservedly, but first of all to corrupt journalists.

      Or maybe they didn’t forget? Not all are stupefied by anti-American and anti-Ukrainian propaganda.

    Journalists covering China's coronavirus epidemic disappear in China

    This is normal for a country with a communist ideology. Lack of freedom of speech + dictatorship of the communist party = terror.

                Yes, you at least minus! It won't add to your mind, but I'm just watching TV ... Because at one time I came across Shahidzhanyan's program "Solo on the Keyboard" - after that I blindly key with 10 fingers!
                That is WHY the local moderator forbade me to use the word "" !? WHAT else can I tell you !?
                Are you not from Ukraine? If so - I will not bother anymore - there is simply no point.

    Oooo ... In the West they said that Kim Jong-un killed his uncle ROCKET! Then this uncle, however, was seen ... Healthy, like manatee, the puck shines with fat and red-I-II-I ... Though you light it!
