Water unsafe to drink for 280 mln people in China, paper says

As many as 280 million people across China are drinking unsafe water as their homes are near pollution sources and major roads, the National Business Daily reported Monday, citing information from the Ministry of Environmental Protection. In fact, up to 900 million residents in rural areas without piped water supply may be affected by unsafe drinking water, the report said. The government should provide subsidy to the affected areas, analysts were quoted as saying.
