The website reports a 350% month-on-month increase in searches for "Chinese army" and an increase in COVID-19 queries.

Shanghai, China, May 26, 2020 /Xinwengao.com/ - ChinaPulse.com, the news aggregator for English-language news from China, reports an uptick in China-related topics that could illuminate the world’s interest in all-things Chinese.

Between April 15 and May 15, 2020 the site saw a month-on-month increase of 350% in searches related to the Chinese military. Specifically, searches for “Chinese army” and “Chinese PLA” popped up as more global news played up the ongoing disagreements between the United States and China. And interest in various Hong Kong-related searches increased by 60-75% as global news of the Special Administrative Region turned from the fight against COVID-19 to the restart of protests in Hong Kong.

Interest in the Chinese Yuan rose 5-8%, as more searches related to “currency”, “devaluation” and “central bank” were made during this time period. But searches related to Coronavirus and COVID-19 generally fell by 6-15%. The only related term that continued to rise was searches based on Wuhan-related news.
