City ramps up infectious disease prevention

SHANGHAI will step up the prevention and control of infectious diseases this year and provide high-quality maternity and child health services, the municipal health bureau said today.

The incidence of severe infectious diseases in the city was 140.34 per 100,000 people last year, childbirth mortality rate was 7.1 per 100,000, while infant mortality rate was 5.04 per 1,000, all very low in the city's history and in line with developed countries, the bureau said.

Flu, measles, cholera, hand-foot-and-mouth disease, rabies, leprosy, parasitic disease, and new infectious diseases are all targets for strict control. Efforts will also be made to provide intervention to people most vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, the bureau said.
