today we went to the restaurant downstairs and finally took a picture of this gem in the menu (which i dont think neither of us would have the courage to taste). and just now i found out that this same virus is actually lethal and killing children in anhui province. not nice.
Xinhua says the enterovirus 71, which can cause the hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) has hit 1,520 children and killed another 20 in Fuyang, Anhui Province. The HFMD has also struck Malaysia and Singapore pretty hard. About 1,162 cases of the HFMD have been reported in the latter and 11 schools were ordered shut as a result of the outbreak.
