HIV Positive Hindi

At least 46 people have been infected with HIV in a tehsil in the last 10 months, allegedly after a quack used a common syringe to administer injections, prompting the state government to intensify its efforts to nab the culprit, an official said.

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 past year.

The villagers said they once in a while observed Yadav changing the needles. The camps were set up after several suspected HIV cases showed up amid routine testing at district hospitals late past year, he said.

Since India is plagued by a shortage of real doctors, the Associated Press reports that millions of poor people seek out fake doctors like Yadav for cheap treatment.

A fake doctor in India infected over 20 people with HIV using contaminated syringe needles.


It was reported that Yadav would visit patients at their homes and give injections for nearly all ailments for meagre payments. Treatment, which was cheap, nearly always involved an injection. About 9,000 of those were under 15.

The quack, sources said, travelled by cycle and visited people's homes to treat them.

"This was an important lead". The group works with HIV and Aids patients in the region.

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.
