"The sale of vaccines without the proper license is strictly illegal." Tough words. When China starts caring about health and safety regulations AT ALL, *THEN* you can start using words like "strictly illegal". You are using the word "strictly" for dramatic effect. It means nothing. ----- The expired vaccine scandal will be yet another case of the government pinning blame on the ostensible culprits, while not confronting the utter lack of accountability and regulation (in China no one confronts unethical behaviour until their own ass is in the firing line). ----- These cases (melamine death milk, repackaging of rotten meat, etc., etc., etc.) will happen again, and again, and again. And each time the government will hand out tough sentences to some criminals, ignore the systemic nature of the problem and make some "strict" new laws for everyone to ignore.
