(02-25 15:01)

Hong Kong has reported a record number of new HIV cases for the third year running.
There were 559 infections last year -- up from 513 in 2012 and 438 in 2011.
A consultant with the Center for Health Protection, Wong Ka-hing, said most infections were acquired by men having sex with men.
He said the trend was worrying.
However, the center said the number of people getting full-blown AIDS last year remained stable at 84. --RTHK
