Five percent of gay men in Beijing are HIV-positive and too many gay men are having unsafe sex, the Beijing Center for Disease Control and Prevention said Sept. 5.
Local gays use condoms less than 50 percent of the time they have sex, said deputy director He Xiong.
At the same time, infection rates have dropped from needle sharing, blood products and mother-to-child transmission, He said.
The department recently tested 1 million people and found 563 infections.
Officially, China has 214,000 HIV cases but the real number is believed to be around 650,000, according to the Ministry of Health and international health organizations.
