China's School Lunches Infect Students
The latest reported case occurred in Shandong province last Wednesday, where 86 primary students were infected with a virus from unsafe lunches at school.
In response to these recent cases, the Chinese Ministry of Health issued a note of caution: The summer and fall seasons, it said, are notable for incidents of hazardous food and water intake. The alert went on to warn that those at schools and construction sites are especially vulnerable.
The ministry is currently addressing low hygiene standards to prevent a trend of health-related incidents from persisting.
As experts believe the virus emanated from unsafe, contaminated water, the ministry instructed its public to strengthen and improve the hygiene, quality control, and supervision involved in canteen use.
