China had 20,711 HIV carriers at the end of September, up 37 percent when compared to a year earlier, the official Xinhua news agency quoted the health ministry Wednesday. The figures were at odds with estimates made by Chinese experts in state media who have said there were around 500,000 HIV positive people in the country. The United Nations has predicted that HIV, if left unchecked, will have infected around 10 million Chinese by 2010. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, or AIDS.
