Tencent apologises for Typhoon Lekima death blunder

China's largest video streaming platform, Tencent, has apologized after they mistakenly said a typhoon had killed everyone in Shandong province, which caters to 99 million people. Tencent had made a 'drastic' error in a push notification about Typhoon Lekima, but later on, corrected the death toll for the province to five. The alert sent was, "Typhoon Lekima has left the entire province dead, seven people are missing."
