Hong Kong's new HIV cases hit record high with 195 people diagnosed in Q3

A total of 195 new HIV cases were reported Hong Kong in the third quarter of the year, the highest number ever in a single quarter, Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection said yesterday, while a separate survey found that the infection rate among gay men had risen almost two percentage points.
