Latent threat? Chinese lab plans to do animal experiments in Florida


Backlink: THE BL

In July, a vast parcel of agricultural land in Levy County, Florida, was acquired by a company with strong ties to the Chinese military. They plan to set up an experimental primate laboratory, causing great concern in the country.

The Beijing-based JOINN laboratory has purchased 1,400 acres, for $5.5 million, in the small farming community of Morriston. The animals will be quarantined and then sold.
