Being the village closest to the South Eastern steel plant, Xilongzi Village in Liguo Town, suffers from the most severe pollution. Villagers use sellotape to seal up their windows in a desperate attempt to keep the pollution out. Last year, Xilongzi resident Sun Faxi contracted pneumonia. This year, his wife Geng Xiuling developed a tumor in her gall bladder. She has just been discharged from hospital.
