China Proposes Hygiene Standards for Public Toilets, Xinhua Says

China proposed hygiene standards for public restrooms, including requiring twice the number of stalls in women’s washrooms than men’s washrooms in service areas used equally by both genders, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

The draft rules from the Ministry of Health also advise installing screens between urinals and doors to toilet stalls in men’s washrooms, and propose standards for design, layout, odors, cleaning, equipment and disinfection, Xinhua reported.

Under the rules, toilets attached to buildings should have no more than one fly per square meter and freestanding restrooms no more than three flies a square meter, Xinhua reported.
