China Declines to Say How Many Children Affected in Milk Scandal

From AFP:

China on Tuesday declined to release updated figures revealing how many children have been affected by the tainted milk scandal, as it attempted to boost confidence in its food safety standards.

The health ministry said it had new statistics showing how many babies were believed to have been left ill by the crisis, but did not release the data and gave no indication if or when it would make the latest information public.

“We’ve not released the latest number of cases because it is not an infectious disease, so it’s not absolutely necessary for us to announce it to the public,” a health ministry spokesman told AFP.
