Health data firm Airfinity estimates more than 5,000 people are probably dying each day from COVID-19 in China.

China has seen a surge in COVID-19 cases since the Communist government lifted its strict zero tolerance measures to contain the virus earlier this month.

The rapid spread of the virus across China has left many pharmacies sold out of medication to treat COVID-19.
