The Chinese Milk Scandal

Continues to get worse. Initial figures of sick infants were estimated to be around 6,000. Then there was an official “update” to about 53,000.

Now the Chinese are refusing to give an updated estimate. Could there be another order of magnitude increase? 500,000 sickened kids seems high, even for China, but it’s far from comforting that they are refusing to release the data.
