Governments that want to control the media fall keep doing the same thing over and over.
Back in 2003 China censored any mention of the SARS virus that was rampaging through Southern China. Thanks to China’s unwillingness to admit the existence of the disease and its active campaign to suppress information about it, SARS spread wider and stronger than if steps had been taken right away.
Now Venezuela is doing the same thing eight years later.
Manuel Aldana, headmaster of the public school Rafael Antonio Godoy, was removed from his position after informing the press that there were some cases of the H1N1 flu in the school located in the city of Mérida, western Venezuela.
When will these control freaks understand that stopping information about a disease will not stop the spread of the disease?
