TWO minute funerals, overnight queues for cremation slots and incinerators blasting 24-hours a day – death is a booming industry in China right now.

Despite the state's desperate claims that Covid is under control, satellite images expose that funeral services are totally overwhelmed and bodies are quickly mounting.


China's ruling party has been peddling the official line that only around 40 deaths have occurred since December 7 – the day that the brutal "zero Covid" restrictions were finally lifted.

In reality, the airborne virus has since been ravaging through its population of 1.45 billion who suffer from low natural immunity as a result of China's harsh Covid policies and less effective vaccines.

Since the virus first appeared in Wuhan in 2019, the Chinese Community Party has been waging an ideological battle to declare that their approach is superior to that of western democracies.

The result has been an allegedly pitiful and systematic underrepresentation of Covid cases and deaths recorded in the official data.

Officially, China claims only 5,272 Covid deaths have occurred since the start of the pandemic.

Global health analytics firm Airfinity estimates that only since December 1, the number of Covid deaths has totalled over half a million.

Airfinity relies on data from China's regional provinces prior to the government's narrowing of its official definition of a Covid death.

Their research predicts Covid deaths will hit 25,000 a day by Jan 23.

Breaking apart China's web of lies are a collection of recent satellite images captured by Maxar Technologies.

The images shows six cities spread across China, honing in on the funeral services and sites of crematoriums.




They expose evidence of rammed entrances to funeral homes, endless queues of hearses parked outside and the building of new carparks to cope with demand.

It betrays the true scale of the catastrophe, in which mourning families are desperately scrambling to bury their loved ones.

"The phone has basically not stopped ringing," an exhausted receptionist at a funeral home in Chongqing in south west China told The Washington Post.

"I have worked here for six years and it has never been this busy," she added before hanging up.

Shi, 27, from Shanghai explained the horrific ordeal that followed his 60-year-old father's death from Covid in December, which included keeping his body for five days because the funeral home was full.

He waited overnight for a crematorium slot, which family members were barred from, and was told he would have to wait a month or two for the ashes.

"For ordinary families like us, this is definitely a heavy blow," Shi reported to The Washington Post.

His father's cause of death was listed as "underlying disease" – a "blatant lie" according to Shi.

In November, a tightening of China's Covid rules following a new outbreak sparked a once-in-a-generation wave of unrest, not seen since the 1989 Tiananmen protests.

President Xi Jinping responded unpredictably with a dramatic U-turn by ditching their draconian measures, opening society back up and letting Covid lose on an unprepared population.

The results have left China's weak and underfunded healthcare system ready to burst, with carnage at the hospitals as doctors and nurses fall sick, patients are treated in hallways and ventilators are running out.

Before it was censored, millions watched a clip circulating on social media of a man begging on his knees for his child to be treated.

“I’m also on my knees,” responds the doctor. “Everyone is waiting, children and the elderly, you are not the only one.”

China's grand deception continues to crack at its seams as prominent celebrities and public figures fall victim to the virus.

In December, opera star Chu Lanlan died at 39, of an undisclosed "illness".

Chinese sitcom star Gong Jintang died on New Years Day – his cause of death yet to be released.

The renowned illustrator and designer of the 2008 Beijing Olympic mascot is reported to have died of a "severe cold".

As the lies mount, anger and resistance is spreading online, defying the strict state censors.

As it did during the November uprising, information is making it past China's Great Firewall and into the public domain.

Sina Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, has banned over 1000 users since December who have been openly critical of China's health policies.

Online users have spoken of the pain of having to burn their own loved one's remains, whilst images and videos expose piles of body bags and police guarding crematoriums to try to hide China's dirtiest secret.
