China's Health Ministry on Monday said two infants have died from ingesting contaminated milk powder, while 1,253 have been sickened and hundreds remain under observation in hospitals.

Of those infants diagnosed as of 8 a.m. Monday (0000 GMT), 913 were only slightly affected and their condition was not considered life threatening, Vice Health Minister Ma Xiaowei told reporters at a news conference in Beijing.

However, 340 remained hospitalized and 53 cases were considered especially severe, he said.

The number of diagnosed cases of contamination with the industrial chemical melamine was more than double the previous figure of about 580.
