China: Shandong Sickness Censored?
There were reports coming out of Wendeng City, in Shandong Province southeast of Beijing, of an unknown illness that has killed at least three and hospitalised others. The deaths went unreported for weeks and information is scarce.
A man, and two of his friends, who were stricken with this affliction died within days of each other and the symptoms were horrific. "His entire body turned dark purple, and he bled from his mouth, nostrils, ears and eyes just as he died."
Sound of Hope Radio interviewed villagers and medical authorities with conflicting results. There were three separate online reports quantifying this outbreak, two have disappeared from the 'net. I had postponed writing an article on this event waiting for more data and information; however, since the original sources were missing this morning I thought it best to report this story as is before all the sources were deleted by the "One World, One Dream" Olympic committee of China.
