It's always "How" china lies, but never "why" China lies.

    China likes to claim that it has dealt with Covid well, and they'd like to preserve that narrative. Besides, the CCP is all about convincing its citizens that the country is well-run. Having an alarming number of Covid casualties would run contrary to that.

    Update: Most Americans aren't very happy with China, and making China look like it's struggling is a strategy to distract Americans from internal problems within the US. Also, it's part of a wider ideological battle: the US wants everyone to perceive China's socialist position as inferior to democracy.

    Because without that data, the numbers would be inaccurate. We like accuracy.
