The above tweet is obviously suggesting that millions of people in China are dying of Coronavirus. And apparently China Mobile has some way of detecting when people are dead, and unsubscribing them.

The link goes to this article

The article raises the coronavirus suggestion, and the "official story"
They link to two sources, the first being Sina Technology:
https://tech.sina.com.cn/roll/2020-03-20/doc-iimxyqwa2012884.shtml
The second source is by a facebook user, Leesimon.hk, which does not add much:
Sina Tech has two other articles on the topic:
https://t.cj.sina.com.cn/articles/v...d=pcpager_tech&loc=1&r=9&rfunc=2&tj=none&tr=9
https://t.cj.sina.com.cn/articles/v...d=pcpager_tech&loc=2&r=9&rfunc=2&tj=none&tr=9
So it seems the reasons are largely just economics. Changes in pricing structure, combined with new freedoms to port your number to other networks. Quite possibly compounded by local economic downturns due to movement restrictions around Coronavirus. But nothing to suggest they all died.

I just read a Bloomberg article about this - it could be due in part to migrant workers staying home or returning to their hometowns.

It makes sense, China has a huge migrant network, made up of mostly internal migrants who leave their hometowns to start work in the booming factory cities. When the factories shut down, I would imagine a many people would return to their hometowns, and lose the incentive to keep their mobile subscription while they are out of work.
