Brisbane Timetable: Spending on PCR testing in China increased many months before the first cases of COVID-19 were revealed: report
Spending on tests used to detect the coronavirus in China’s Hubei province has soared in the months before the first official reports of COVID-19 emerged, suggesting the virus was spreading in the northern summer of 2019, well before it was publicly recognized by the Chinese government.
The data, compiled by the Australian cybersecurity firm Internet 2.0, showed that the sale of polymerase chain reaction tests – used to detect the presence of specific viruses – jumped to 67.4 million yuan (14.3 million dollars) in 2019, from 36.7 million yuan in 2018, and 29.1 million in 2017.
