BEIJING (XFN-ASIA) – More than 60 people had to be treated in hospital for a severe skin reaction after coming into contact with a polluted Chinese river, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

The victims, who had collected dead fish or washed their clothes in the Jindong River in eastern Anhui province on Tuesday, felt a burning sensation on their skin a few hours later,

The report, citing the local government, said an oily substance could be seen on the river, but the cause of the pollution was not yet known.

Nine of the victims stayed in hospital overnight, while the others were released after shorter treatment, the report added.

In China more than 70 pct of rivers and lakes are polluted, while underground water supplies in 90 pct of Chinese cities are contaminated, previous state media reports have said.
