China has reported nearly 60,000 deaths related to COVID-19 since early December as the virus spirals out-of-control. Infections have surged in the People’s Republic since the nation lifted its strict “Zero Covid” policy in the face of growing public backlash on December 7 last year. As of just last week, however, China had been officially suggesting that there had only been 22 deaths since December, having redefined its criteria for recording Covid deaths such that only those who died of respiratory failure would be counted.

The newly-released figures reveal that a whopping 59,938 people — with an average age of 80.3 — have died with Covid in Chinese hospitals between December 8 and January 12.
