Around 9,000 people are estimated to die of Covid every day in China as the nation of 1.4 billion decides to scrap the zero-Covid policy.

According to health firm estimates, the total number of deaths in China linked to Covid in December could exceed 100,000 with at least 18.6 million cases. By mid-January, there could be 3.7 million Covid cases a day. By January 23, a total of 5,84,000 people are estimated to have died in China.

China counts Covid deaths rather than cases of people who died of virus-induced respiratory failure after testing positive with a nucleic acid test, which includes all deaths within 28 days of testing positive, as do other countries. China reported just one death on 30 December.

Chinese officials held a meeting with World Health Organization officials to discuss the COVID situation. In the online meeting, the World Health Organization urged China to provide more data on genetic sequencing, hospitalizations, deaths and vaccinations.

China has always described its COVID response as transparent and scientific, even as more countries have banned Chinese arrivals.
