Conman infects 21 people with HIV while pretending to be a doctor

Conman infects 21 people with HIV while pretending to be a doctor

In a shocking incident, at least 21 people have been infected with HIV in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao allegedly after a quack used a common syringe to administer injection. Villagers later accused Yadav of rarely changing his syringe needles.

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.

At the end of 2016, it was reported that 2.1 million Indian citizens were living with HIV. About 9,000 of those were under 15. India has enrolled a 20 percent yearly decrease in new contaminations in the course of recent years, as indicated by the report. After the tests, 38 more patients - six from just one family - were found HIV positive, Chowdhary confirmed.

Yadav would visit towns on his bike and treat patients outside.

"I would have forwarded the letters to the nodal officer (for quacks) to take necessary action", he said.

"Villagers are ignorant about hygiene", he explained. "This was an essential lead".

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's health schemes seem to have been flushed down the toilet after at least 40 cases of people suffering from HIV were reported from Bangarmau in Unnao district, UP.

Mehtab Alam, an undertaking administrator for Raza Hussain Memorial Charitable Trust, said that fake doctors don't utilize expendable syringes, rather utilizing glass syringes and one needle to infuse several patients.

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.

"Villagers are unmindful about cleanliness", he said.

HIV, or the human immunodeficiency virus, is transmitted through unprotected sex, use of infected needles and syringes, blood transfusion or from mother to baby.

The HIV targets the immune system and weakens people's defence systems against infections and some types of cancer.
