Ns. experts reported that Chinese authorities have not been following guidelines to combat the deadly disease.

The U.K.-based charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said Tuesday that a total of 642 cases of malaria had been recorded in the country from January to July, up from the previous high of 542 cases in December.

That was a record, according to the nonprofit’s malaria specialist, David Black, a former U.NB researcher.

The numbers, which are likely to exceed the U.NS data, are consistent with what has been seen in other countries, including the United States, which reported a record 542 infections in March, according a report by the U,N.

Health Organization.

The infections were the highest since March 2012.

The outbreak is expected to reach 10,000 cases by the end of the year, Black said in a statement.

China has not reported any new cases, but health officials say that many people are turning to illegal drugs that can be harmful to health, including fentanyl, a synthetic opioid with an estimated street value of $8 billion.

China, a global economic powerhouse, has struggled with the spread of malaria, which kills about 300,000 people a year in Africa and Southeast Asia, and has forced it to scale back in some areas.

It has a poor record on combating malaria, including a failure to control the drug-resistant strains.

A number of U.NTan’s experts have urged the government to improve its record, but the UNB has warned that it is “very much up for discussion” at a meeting scheduled for May in Wuzhen, China.

China’s government has pledged to strengthen control of the virus by establishing a national malaria surveillance system and by deploying 100,000 troops to fight it.
