A leaked Powerpoint presentation from wikileaks, showing that wikileaks is doing exactly what it should be doing: providing the raw information for good public health reporting, public health reporting that causes those in power to be asked a lot of difficult questions, so that things get fixed. In this case the information is the dramatic rise in human rabies cases in China from 1996 (159 cases) to 2007 (3,300 cases). It is sad to see China backslide, going so far backwards. That’s why now, more than ever, China needs democracy.
The title of this post is the note the uploader of the leaked document added when she/he uploaded the file to wikileaks.
But, question, where is the public health reporting on this issue? I understand it won’t happen in China, with their rather constrained press, but why not in Taiwan or Singapore?
