i really have been trying to ignore the news. really i have. but this one – *checks date*- has to be a joke right? fake news? please?
no, it’s probably real and, in this dumb blogger’s opinion, very predictable. will update with more later, but for now consider this: Traditional-Communist/Neo-Conservative nation with a history of fascist censorship tendencies under-reports their casualties from a novel virus that is currently upending the world? Pre-emptive saving of face in the wake of a pandemic that has caused all of humanity to reflect on its mortality? No- who saw that coming?
Vetted or not, it won an IRL belly laugh from me, nonetheless. hope you’re well and staying safe!
