China is the champion at cheating and fakes. During the Olympics we saw it – virtually everything was… well… VIRTUAL! Now the biggest scandal to come out of China is the tainted milk (with traces of melamine, the toxic additive) that has made kids sick!
The number of those who have been affected has increased to 94,000.
In some areas diagnoses rocketed up in the space of just a few days. In the most extreme case, northwestern Gansu province, the number of sick children climbed to 13,459 by Sept 26 from 1,695 a week earlier, the official Xinhua agency said.
The country’s space walk excitement has somehow distracted the country from the bad effects of this scandal.
One of the issues that one sees in China is that one cannot even blame the private sector – since the Government “herds” most of it along!
