Chinese Struggle to Control Hand-Foot-Mouth-Disease

The Chinese government is pressured to control another deadly disease to hit parts of China and is rushing to get rid of it before the Olympics starts. Doubly hard is the struggle to control the bad press brought about by this "epidemic" especially with the 2008 Beijing Olympics just around the corner.

Still Chinese health authorities say the recent outbreak of the Hand Foot and Mouth Disease among the populace especially the children will not hamper preparations for the big event. They expect to get rid of this or at least safely quarantine this unusual disease. The city of Fuyang had reported over 4,000 cases of the HFMD since mid march. Among these reported, 22 have dies and 42 are critically ill.

People need to get some pretty good health coverage if they plan to make that trip this August is all I can say.
