Possible real number of coronavirus deaths in China calculated

Due to the nature of Chinese telecoms, your national ID is bound to your mobile number account, which is in turn bound to your Alipay account, the one-stop mobile app that manages all monetary transactions, including banking.

If you lose it you lose access to Alipay, which is basically how the Chinese pay for everything; because of that people don’t just cancel.

When phone number accounts are not paid for a certain period, or if some other actor (relatives? gov?) shut down your personal account related to the country’s database, the account is automatically cancelled.
