The World

About 14,000 cases of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) were reported worldwide by the end of August, and there are several million virus carriers capable of infecting others, the World Health Organization reported from Geneva. In Mexico, Secretary of Health Guillermo Soberon Acevedo denied published reports that authorities will check incoming foreigners for possible contagion of the usually fatal disease, which primarily strikes homosexual men and intravenous drug users. He said there have been only 17 confirmed cases of AIDS in Mexico.
