Chinese hospital display via Agence France-PresseThe Chinese province of Hunan urged parents on Sunday to seek immediate treatment for children showing symptoms of hand, foot and mouth disease after official figures showed 112 people died from the illness last month.
The disease, which children are especially vulnerable to, also infected more than 381,000 people, the Ministry of Health reported last week.
“The disease incidence rate in June was much higher than that of last June, which has much to do with the high temperatures this summer,” said Liu Fuqiang with the provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
