China has put a million residents in lockdown due to several coronavirus cases in the city of Wuhan, the place where the pandemic originated back in late 2019.

The lockdown in Wuhan’s Jiangxia district for the next several days comes after four asymptomatic cases were found in the area this week.

There is no way to know how many cases were really found as China has repeatedly lied throughout the course of the pandemic on a variety of issues, ranging from the number of cases and deaths in the communist nation to falsely blaming the U.S. military for the virus.

CNN reported that entertainment venues, small clinics, supermarkets, restaurants, places of state-controlled worship, learning centers, and tourist areas were all shut down as was public transportation.

In high-and-medium-risk neighborhoods, residents were banned from leaving their homes in an effort to “further reduce the flow of people, [and] lower the risk of cross-infection and achieve dynamic zero-Covid in the shortest time possible,” authorities said in a statement.

The coronavirus pandemic, which has caused trillions of dollars in damage to the global economy and killed an estimated 15 million people, broke out sometime in late 2019. However, an exact timeline of events has never been established due to China resisting international pressure for an investigation inside the country.

Three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology — China’s first Biosafety level-4 laboratory — were hospitalized in November 2019 with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report that was released last year.

As The Daily Wire previously reported, U.S. officials have indicated that they believe that China “intentionally” underreported their true numbers “by at least a factor of 50.” British officials reportedly told Prime Minister Boris Johnson early in the pandemic that China could have underreported their numbers “by a factor of 15 to 40 times.”

The Washington Post reported in April 2020 that “evidence” coming out of Wuhan suggested that the real death count was over 40,000, which came as China claimed at the time that it only had a little over 4,600 deaths total nationwide. A conservative estimate in April 2020 from the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) — which gave China every benefit of the doubt when coming up with their calculations, and then some — suggested that China severely and “deliberately” underreported their numbers and that China’s true numbers at the time had to be at least 2.9 million infections with well over 100,000 deaths.
