China goes all in

Not satisfied with just putting their foot in their mouths, China sticks hand in there too!

China issues alert over hand, foot and mouth disease

China's Health Ministry issued a nationwide alert on Saturday calling on local authorities to stop the spread of a virus that causes hand, foot and mouth disease, after an outbreak killed 22 children.

The deaths were first reported in March in the city of Fuyang, in the eastern province of Anhui.

More than 3,700 people in Fuyang have been infected with the virus, up from Friday's official tally of 3,300, according to figures released by local authorities on Saturday.

The central government has warned that the number of cases may increase over the summer because the June-July period is considered peak season for the disease. [...]

Moral of this story...

Don't be taking the kids to see the Olympics in China. Hell just don't go at all. It is not worth it.
