China: Number of New HIV/AIDS Cases Rises More Than 50 Percent in Beijing

November 21, 2007

In the first 10 months of 2007, Beijing officially registered 973 new HIV/AIDS cases, a 53.71 percent increase from a year earlier, the head of the city's Municipal Health Bureau said today. Jin Dapeng told a working conference on HIV prevention, "Incidents of the disease are still on the rise in Beijing, and it is spreading from the high-risk groups of people to the general population." To improve HIV/AIDS monitoring, city health authorities will keep close watch over high-risk groups, such as workers at entertainment venues, beauty salons, and massage parlors. "They'll be obliged to be tested for HIV infection," said Jin.
