Coronavirus: Chinese premier warns against cover-up of outbreaks

China’s premier warned officials against any attempt to cover up or under-report the
spread of the coronavirus as a northern province went into “wartime mode” for one of the toughest lockdowns since Wuhan early last year. Premier Li Keqiang told a State Council executive meeting on Friday that transparency was essential to controlling outbreaks.

“In the process of prevention and control of the infectious disease, one of the keys is to seek the truth from facts, openly and transparently release epidemic information, and never allow concealing or under-reporting,” Li said, according to a statement released on Saturday.
