China reports pig disease death after giving all clear

From The Reuters AlertNet :

A pig-borne disease that killed nearly 40 people in southwest China has claimed a victim in the far south, bordering Hong Kong, state media said on Tuesday, a day after the government said it had brought the outbreak under control.

The new death and three separate infections were reported in Guangdong province, where two cases were reported in early August, even as the China Daily praised government efforts to confine the bacterial disease to southwestern Sichuan.
