    some 95 people have been admitted to hospital in China after a private clinic gave them injections suspected to be contaminated with hepatitis C.A surgeon at the clinic in Liaoning province has been detained, according to the Xinhua News Agency.
    Donggang city officials say 120 patients who received varicose vein treatment were traced and screened for the disease and 95 of those are undergoing further examination in hospital.
    Local authorities were tipped off that patients could be infected and the case is still being investigated, according to xinhua.
    The hepatitis C virus causes a liver disease that can range from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong condition that can lead to cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer.
    The case is somewhat reminiscent of a scandal in Henan province in the 1990s, when thousands of people were mistakenly infected with HIV, in one of the biggest medical scandals of all time. There are no official figures because the Chinese government has never admitted or apologised for what happened.

    I can't believe that such a modern nation with such a vibrant economy, glitzy cities and mall, High Speed trains, and everything that is great, can be so stupid!

    Capitalist propaganda!

    He must have been an Uighur trained in Pakistan sworn to eliminate the Han menace in their country!

    One may not understand the emotions of the Chinese since they have very taut features that do not allow emotional expression requiring great skin flexibility as others, but they do care. I am sure that they Chinese do care for the Uighurs and the Tibetans that we cannot understand in a physical way.
