No cross-strait ‘spiritual union’

By Lin Shih-Chia 林世嘉

As African swine fever-infected pig carcasses from China have reached the shores of Kinmen County, it suffices to say that an outbreak of the epidemic is likely to happen in Taiwan soon.

Lin Shih-chia is executive director of the Foundation of Medical Professionals Alliance in Taiwan and a former legislator.
