Around two dozens contracted HIV in India due to single syringe use

HIV Positive Hindi Over 40 people infected with HIV in UP after quack from Unnao uses common syringe

A case of medical negligence was reported in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao on Monday where 21 people were infected with HIV virus after an alleged quack used a common syringe to administer an injection.

Sushil Choudhury, the official, said police were looking for Rajendra Yadav, who fled Bangarmau, a small town in Uttar Pradesh state, after the HIV infections were detected in December a year ago.

The man in question, Rajendra Yadav, did not regularly change needles and this was the cause of spreading the disease.

He said the doctor could be charged with carrying out a negligent act likely to spread infection of diseases, voluntarily causing grievous harm by using risky weapons or means, and practising medicine without having registration as a medical practitioner with the state government. The lack of proper care has prompted many to seek out fake doctors for cheap treatment.

Five of those infected were children, mostly under the age of 12 years.

Yadav visited villages on his bicycle and treated patients outdoors.

The infections came to light when an NGO, which organised a series of health camps in the area in November 2017, found HIV-positive symptoms in some people.

Bitcoin sinking like a stone with cryptocurrency market in freefall
Worldwide regulators are expected to debate how to address the risks posed by the market at the next G20 meeting in March. Bitcoin reached its peak in November, when it hit $19,000, and then began to fall steadily from mid-December.


"After we found that a large number of cases were being reported from this area, a screening camp was held, in which 566 persons were examined".

"An investigation showed that nearly all of them had taken injections from one person".

The investigation revealed that the quack in a neighbouring village had used a single syringe for injection in the name of cheaper treatment.

"Forty positive cases have been found".

"Villagers are ignorant about hygiene", Alam said.

According to sources, the victims got infected with HIV after the quack used the same needle to inject drugs in many patients. Over time, an HIV infection can develop into Aids, a progressive failure of the immune system that leaves the body open to life-threatening infections and cancers.
