Hong Kong (CNN) -- At least 19 people have been stung to death by hornets -- which may include the world's largest hornet species Vespa mandarinia -- in China's central Shaanxi province in the last three months, according to the city government of Ankang, the apparent epicenter of a recent spate of fatalities and injuries.

A total of 583 people in the area have been stung by hornets since July 1, say city officials. Seventy victims are still recovering in hospitals.

"I ran and shouted for help, but the hornets chased me about 200 meters, and stung me for more than 3 minutes," he recounted to the state-run China Youth Daily.

Chen said hornets had first swarmed a woman and child working nearby, who then ran towards him. Both later died from the hornets' toxins.

"The more you run, the more they want to chase you," said another victim, whose kidneys were ravaged by the venom. When he was admitted to the hospital, his urine was the color of soy sauce, according to local reports.

Is there a nest nearby the attacks? I know they are relentless if they think their nest is being distrubed.

We must launch anti-hornet drones immediately.

I think we have a relative of those here in Kentucky, called "Japanese Giant Hornets".  They get big, they bite and sting at the same time and hurt like hell.  I've never been swarmed by them though, just stung once or twice, killed it and dealt with the swelling later with a bee sting kit.  I don't think we've had any major problems with people getting swarmed by them around here though, that's crazy stuff.

Bill Gates was sponsoring the development an anti-mosquito laser. I propose an upgrade to his system so that it is a bit more long these lines
