China has banned its officials from smoking in public to set an example to the rest of the country that has the world's largest number of smokers. China's state media said Sunday that officials are not allowed to smoke in schools, hospitals, sports venues, on public transport or any other places where smoking is banned, or to smoke or offer cigarettes when performing official duties.
