HIV/AIDS cases increase in China

China reports 18,543 new cases of HIV/AIDS in H1 2007, a figure almost the same as the whole of 2006

China has reported 18,543 new cases of HIV/AIDS in H1 2007, according to local media reports.

The new figure is almost the same as new cases reported in the whole of 2006.

Sharing needles among drug users was the main cause of new infections, said the Xinhua news agency, which quoted Han Mengjie, an official with AIDS Control Work Committee of the State Council, from his report.

The report also warned of the danger of the virus spreading to the general public through unsafe sex and greater migration of the infected population.

China had 214,300 officially registered cases of HIV/AIDS by the end of July 2007, which is an increase of five per cent over April 2007. The United Nations says that the actual number of HIV infected patients in the country could be in the region of 650,000.
