Quote:21 Million Fewer Cellphone Users in China May Suggest a High CCP Virus Death Toll

The number of Chinese cellphone users dropped by 21 million in the past three months, Beijing authorities announced on March 19.
Deaths due to the CCP virus may have contributed to the high number of account closings.

Cellphones are an indispensable part of life in China.
“The digitization level is very high in China. People can’t survive without a cellphone,” Tang Jingyuan, a U.S.-based China affairs
commentator, told The Epoch Times on March 21. “Dealing with the government for pensions and social security, buying train tickets,
shopping … no matter what people want to do, they are required to use cellphones.

“The Chinese regime requires all Chinese to use their cellphones to generate a health code. Only with a green health code are Chinese
allowed to move in China now. It’s impossible for a person to cancel his cellphone.”

China introduced mandatory facial scans on Dec. 1, 2019, to confirm the identity of the person who registered the phone.
As early as Sept. 1, 2010, China required all cellphone users to register phones with their real identification, by which the state can
control people’s speech via its large-scale monitoring system.

Furthermore, Chinese people’s bank accounts and social security accounts are bundled with their cellphone plans; apps on Chinese
phones check SIM cards against the state’s database to make sure the number belongs to the user.

Beijing first launched cellphone-based health codes on March 10. All people in China must install a cellphone app and register their
personal health information. Then the app can generate a QR code, which appears in three colors, to classify the user’s health level.

Red means the person has an infectious disease, yellow means the person might have one, and green means the person doesn’t.
Beijing claimed that the health codes are intended to prevent the spread of the CCP virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus.

21 Million Cellphone Users
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in
February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone
and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.

The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million.
The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.

In the previous February, the number increased. According to MIIT, the number of cellphone users increased in February 2019 from
1.5591 billion to 1.5835 billion, which is 24.37 million more.
The number of landline users increased from 183.477 million to 190.118 million, which is 6.641 million more.

According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s population at the end of 2019 was 4.67 million larger than in 2018,
reaching 1.40005 billion.

The 2020 decrease in landline users may be due to the nationwide quarantine in February, during which small businesses were shut
down. But the decrease in cellphone users can’t be explained in this way.

According to the operation data of all three Chinese cellphone carriers, cellphone accounts increased in December 2019 but dropped
steeply in 2020.

China Mobile is the largest carrier, holding about 60 percent of the Chinese cellphone market. It reported that it gained 3.732 million
more accounts in December 2019, but lost 0.862 million in January 2020 and 7.254 million in February 2020.

China Mobile’s performance in the same months in 2019 was markedly different; it gained 2.411 million more accounts in January
2019 and 1.091 million more in February 2019.

China Telecom is the second-largest carrier, holding about 21 percent of the market. It gained 1.18 million users in December 2019, but lost 0.43 million users in January 2020 and 5.6 million users in February 2020.

In 2019, it gained 4.26 million in January and 2.96 million in February.
China Unicom, which hasn’t yet published the data for February, shares the same experience as the other two telecoms in January 2020
and in early 2019. The company lost 1.186 million users in January 2020, but gained 1.962 million users in February 2019 and 2.763
million users in January 2019.

China allows each adult to apply for at most five cellphone numbers. Since Feb. 10, the majority of Chinese students have taken online
classes with a cellphone number due to their schools being ordered to stay closed. These students’ accounts are under their parents’
names, which means some patients needed to open a new cellphone account in February.

This was a very interesting read. Terrifyingly nauseating. It has been my suspicion for years that the western world will adopt this approach as population control
I am currently making an attempt to devour an account by a two deflectors from China, of the early history of the rise of dictator ship in said country and another more personal presentation from a Mongolian deflector. 
They are both arduous to get through, mostly because they invoke connotations to the manner in which, I perceive, we in the so called free world are being led .
Through subtle manipulation. But perhaps I am wrong or just paranoid. 
Forgive me if I am off topic here.
