China debunks reports of mass corpse burning in Wuhan

China National Environmental Monitoring Center (CNEMC) refuted data released by a weather website about the high level of sulfur dioxide in Wuhan, the epicenter of coronavirus epidemic.
The weather monitoring agency called the data as ‘seriously distorted’ and incorrect.

Windy.com, a Czech company providing weather forecasting services, released a data reportedly showing that sulfur dioxide levels in so-called “contaminated zones” of Wuhan had topped 1,500 micrograms per cubic meter early on February 9.

Some foreign media organizations picked up the data and correlate it to mass cremations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients.

The data was used to accuse China of covering up the real number of fatalities due to COVID-19, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

CNEMC cross-checked the data and found out that the sulfur dioxide concentration in the Wuhan did not even exceed 8 micrograms per cubic meter during that time.

Instead, the city registered a marked drop in key air pollutants due to lockdown.

From Jan. 24 to Feb. 10, the concentration of small and breathable particles known as PM2.5 dropped by 38 percent year on year, while PM10 and sulfur dioxide plunged by 42 percent and 22 percent, respectively.

Meanwhile, an unnamed official from CNEMC was quoted by Xinhua News saying that Windy is not precise compared to China’s local weather monitoring centers.

“Windy’s ground-level sulfur dioxide data was not calibrated with the actual data gathered by on-site monitoring in China, leading to figures 10 times or even 100 times greater than the actual amount,” he said.
