Chinese pork industry hit by strange disease

About today AFP Beijing: “…More than 257,000 pigs had been infected with the epidemic, known as blue-eared pig disease, by late last month, with 68,000 of them dying, Xinhua news agency said late on Saturday…” But do not worry, “everything is under control!”

Does this story remind you something? I think yes…

Chinese officials said that more than 100 million pigs had been immunized…

But westerners specialists have some problems to believe both official figures: the number of infected pigs and the number of immunized.

I remember 1 or 2 weeks ago I saw on the news that the price of pork was as a rocket in China. Who could believe that only few hundred thousand are able to modify the price in a country as China?

Let’s not mention about the immunization…

Any risk for people?

Who knows?

Does Taiwan import pork from China? If yes, maybe I should modify my diet.
