BEIJING - The number of AIDS cases in China has increased by 140.1% compared to the same period last year as reported on Saturday by news media in China.

The Ministry of Health website (www.moh.gov.cn) confirmed the findings that 840,000 people have been infected with HIV in China and 80,000 are on the last stages of the fatal disease.

The United Nations estimated that approximately 800,000 - 1,500,000 people were infected with HIV by the end of 2001. United Nations officials warned that in 2002, if effective measures were not in place, large-scale outbreaks may arise and increase the number of victims to ten million by the end of 2010.
