The number of patients suffering from AIDS in China was 15,088 in September 1999, a third higher than the previous year. The majority of the patients are from rural areas with around five times more affected males than females, reports the Chinese Medical News. People aged between 20 and 29 account for the largest group of sufferers (58%), while those between 30-39 account for 22.6%. Experts in China estimate that the actual number of patients who are carrying the HIV virus has exceeded 400,000 across the country.
