Censors jump into action as China’s latest vaccine scandal ignites

BEIJING (AFP, REUTERS) - Chinese censors on Sunday (July 22) deleted articles and postings about the vaccine industry as an online outcry over the country’s latest vaccine scandal intensified. 

Regulators said last week that they had halted production of a rabies vaccine at a large pharmaceutical company in the north-east after finding fabricated records and other problems during an inspection. 

It was just the latest in a series of health and safety scandals which have fuelled fear over the safety of basic food and medicine and anger at regulators asleep on the job. 

China’s censors and regulators struggled to stay abreast of the public’s response, deleting posts on WeChat as state media tried to take control of the narrative. 

On Sunday night, China’s Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) announced it had ordered all production stopped at the vaccine-maker and launched a probe.
