Wuhan locals claim coronavirus has killed 42,000 people in the city alone, more than ten times the national figure claimed by Chinese authorities.

The article goes on to state the following:

But residents in Wuhan claim 500 urns have been handed out to grieving families every day from seven separate funeral homes all serving the city.

Radio Free Asia reports:

Funeral homes have informed families that they will try to complete cremations before the traditional grave-tending festival of Qing Ming on April 5, which would indicate a 12-day process beginning on March 23.

Social media users have been doing some basic math to figure out their daily capacity, while the news website Caixin.com reported that 5,000 urns had been delivered by a supplier to the Hankou Funeral Home in one day alone — double the official number of deaths.

A Wuhan resident surnamed Zhang reportedly told RFA on Friday:

“It can’t be right … because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died? They started distributing ashes and starting interment ceremonies on Monday.”
