BEIJING: The number of people living with HIV/AIDS in China has hit 5,75,000 by the end of October, with 1,77,000 deaths, a Chinese health agency said ahead of the World AIDS day .
Six out of every 10,000 people in China may be infected with HIV/AIDS, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said providing statistics from January to October this year.
Describing the situation as a 'mild pandemic', men who have sex with men have become the group with the highest infection rate, the CDC said.
Around 8 per cent of men who have sex with men in China are living with HIV/AIDS, according to 2015 statistics.
Sexual transmission is the main infection channel, with infection through heterosexual activities accounting for 66.6 per cent of total cases, those through homosexual activities 27.2 per cent, while mother-to-child and drug needle infection rates are low.
Infections among young people have become particularly noticeable, as 2,662 new cases of students living with HIV/AIDS were reported from January to October, a surge of 27.8 per cent year on year, the CDC said.
