China to ban smoking in public places!

According to the Health Ministry, this regulation will come in to place on the 1st of May this year, including buses, restaurants and bars.

But they have still allowed smoking in the workplace but it is banned in hospitals and schools. Almost a quarter of China’s population smoke and more than one million people die every year from smoking-related illnesses.

China has 350 million smokers who consumer 2 trillion cigarettes a year. Smoking is fashionable in China, where it is seen as an essential and mainly sociable touch for some jobs.

Some people think the Chinese government has not been quick enough to ban smoking in the country.

The new regulations have banned cigarette vending machines in some areas. They are also trying to spread the knowledge of the dangers of smoking as well by campaigning.

So this will save around £ 2 billion a year alone in china
