On December 31, Jason Zhang, Xinhua News Agency, Chengdu Bureau, published a story on BLSCP’s work on cysticercosis. Click here
to view the story. We thanked Jason for his excellent story and sent him the following corrections: For Lhosang’s surgery BLSCP actually contributed 63,759 yuan ($9,707), which covered a major part of her hospital costs. Cysticercosis is prevalent in China mostly in farming, not herding, areas because pigs are raised and consumed mostly by farmers living at moderate elevations, not herders living at high elevations. Also, cysticercosis is sometimes, not always, fatal.
