China Censors Fury Over Faulty Vax

Chinese authorities are revving up censorship amid public outcry over news that an unconfirmed number of children received faulty vaccines.
Yesterday, Chinese officials detained 15 people involved in the case, including Gao Junfang, chair of Changsheng Bio-technology Co Ltd, accused of fabricating production and inspection data related to hundreds of thousands of rabies and diphtheria and tetanus vaccines. That step, nor official reassurances that the vaccines are safe, failed to quell public fury, expressed largely online.
In response, by today "vaccine" ranked among the most restricted words on Weibo, China's social media platform, the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at the University of Hong Kong said.
