Taiwan’s African Swine Fever Response Stirs Cross-Strait Tensions

Fuck you, Diplomat. Maybe it’s China not providing information about the epidemic that is stirring tensions?


“This demonstrates China’s mismanagement of the infectious disease, which has forced Taiwan to step up its management and inspection,” Chen said at a Dec. 17 legislative hearing.

No, it’s China willfully ignoring a treaty we actually made to share viral outbreak information and warnings. They have always done this.

Yeah are they trying to make an equivalence as to who is to blame ?
And it’s well known this African swine fever is spreading rapidly in China.

I just made my first trip to China over Christmas. I didn’t eat pork the entire four days I was there. Maybe I was being paranoid, but I figure there are a lot of alternative foods, and better safe than sorry.
