Adjust font size:

Rabies continued to be the most deadly infectious disease in China in January, with a death rate of about 84 percent, topping the list of most fatal diseases followed by tuberculosis, AIDS, hepatitis B and cerebrospinal meningitis.


A total of 495 people died from infectious diseases in January 2007, down sharply from 810 in December but very similar to the level reported in January 2006, the Ministry of Health reported on Saturday.


Bird flu has reappeared on the scene after four months of silence, with China reporting on Jan. 10 that a 37-year-old farmer in east China's Anhui Province had contracted bird flu but had recovered.
