Uttar Pradesh: 46 infected with HIV as a common syringe was used

Uttar Pradesh: 46 infected with HIV as a common syringe was used

According to a health camp report from November past year at least 40 positive cases have been reported from Unnao. The gathering works with HIV and AIDS patients in the area.

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 unsafe weapons or means, and practising medicine without having registration as a medical practitioner with the state government. Most of the cases are from Premganj and Chakmirapur villages.

Kumar treated at least 50 people a day with the same injection, cleaning it with plain water, before injecting the next patient, locals told The Indian Express.

He is a quack, Choudhary said. Of those, 9,100 were children under age 15. "Now, the doctors are checking all the patients, who have been given injection by Rajendra Yadav", he stated.

Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state run by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has a sketchy healthcare record in a country whose spending on medical care ranks among the lowest in the world as a percentage of GDP.

China has recently cracked down intensely on Bitcoin mining, while South Korea has also passed legislation recently. Following the sell-off, Stellar (XLM) lost its sixth place, now standing at the eighth place based on market cap.


Subsequent investigations by the health department into the cases revealed that the persons were administered injections through a single syringe in the name of cheap treatment.

According to 2017 UNAIDS data, India has 2.1 million people living with HIV, which is about 0.26% of its population.

Nath Singh informed that efforts were on to arrest the quack. "In the camps, 566 people were examined of whom 21 were found to be infected with HIV", Chief medical officer Dr SP Chaudhary said.

P.K. Dohre, the medical superintendent of the local community health centre, said that as per information gathered from the affected persons, the accused quack would visit the villages on a bicycle, and conduct his business sitting on the porch of a high school. "So we are also mapping truck drivers", he said.
