Wasps kill 42 people and have injured 1,600 people in wave of attacks in China

A wave of wasp attacks kill 42 people and have been injured almost 1,598 in a wave of attacks in Shaanxi (north) during last three months, according to Chinese health authorities

Only 206 people are still hospitalized from more than 1,600 people who had been stung, according to information published by Chinese National Health and Family Planning Commission.

The cause for these attacks is unknown, as authorities explained to Xinhua New Agency.

Those insects has become more active due to high temperatures of last two months in Shaanxi, explained to news agency Huan Rongyao, expert from Forestry Department of Ankang – one of the most affected city by wasp attacks.

However, Professor Hua Baozhen says that main cause is the decrease of “wasps’ natural enemies” as spiders and birds, which is a result of ecological changes”.

Chinese National Health and Family Planning Commission has urged all authorities upon “making a huge effort to minimize numbers of deaths”.

 

Shaanxi maintains alertness since September

Chinese region maintains alertness since end of September, when increase number of deaths was made clear in relation to last years. This is the time when wasp’s attacks normally happen.

Local authorities have given information to citizens about protections against bites because they aren’t conscious enough to avoid stings.

Furthermore, they have urged all departments upon organizing together in order to fight this wave and to destroy wasp’s nests next to the most populated areas.

Also, doctors have been moved to the most affected areas – especially rural areas – to treat critical patients, according to Chinese Commission.
