FT - China swine fever outbreak threatens Communist party's reputation

Farmers and analysts say government mis-steps have been an important contributor to the crisis, with poor policy threatening to make the disease a chronic issue despite efforts to revive the pig farming industry.
Disease prevention is another area where government support is waning, with disinfectants that were once distributed for free now off limits to average farmers.

One reason for the inaction is a slowing Chinese economy, which is growing at its slowest pace in almost 30 years, making it difficult for many local governments to meet their obligations.
