Over 40 people infected with HIV in UP after quack from Unnao uses common syringe
Police suspect that a fake doctor has infected hundreds of villagers with HIV by using a single syringe to administer injections while treating them for the common cold.
The villagers said they rarely saw Yadav changing the needles. Reacting to the reports of 40 positive cases of HIV, the medical superintendent said that the concerned authorities have been alerted a future course of action is being designed.
Because of India's poor health system, many patients seek "fake doctors" for cheaper treatment. 9,100 were children under the age of 15. India has registered a 20 per cent annual decline in new infections over the past few years, according to the report.
Yadav would visit towns on his bike and treat patients outside.
The camps were set up after several suspected HIV cases showed up during routine tests at the district hospitals in Bangarmau town in Unnai late past year, he added.
"An investigation showed that nearly all of them had taken injections from one person".
A committee comprising additional CMO Tanmay Kakkar and deputy CMO JR Singh was formed to investigate the incidence of HIV patients in the three pockets.
According to medical officials, he told many of his patients that an injection would make them feel better, and the patients said he kept reusing the same syringe without cleaning it. Amin Welfare Trust, a body appointed by the UP AIDS Control Society, found 13 more people with HIV in Bangarmau in November 2017, and immediately shared the findings with the authorities, said a health department official. Villagers whined that he would give infusions for all afflictions for small installments, Choudhury said.
The transmission of HIV through infected syringes, especially among drug users, has been on the increase, despite efforts by the Indian government to control such cases. "Thirty-eight persons were found reactive while 21 were found positive", Unnao Chief Medical Officer S.P. Chaudhary said.
