Fake Doctor Infects Over 20 People With HIV Using Contaminated Syringes

The Uttar Pradesh Police have registered a case against a fake doctor for infecting at least 21 people in Unnao with HIV after he used one needle to treat all of them, PTI reported on Tuesday.

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 previous year. Villagers later accused Yadav of rarely changing his syringe needles. "The matter came to light after the health department launched an investigation following reports of "high number of HIV cases" in the area". The lack of proper care has prompted many to seek out fake doctors for cheap treatment.

India had a total of 2.1 million people living with HIV at the end of 2016, with new infections that year totaling 80,000. 9,100 were children under the age of 15. India has enrolled a 20 percent yearly decrease in new contaminations in the course of recent years, as indicated by the report.

Police officers in the Unnao area are now looking for a jhola chhaap doctor in his mid 40s who rides a bicycle, often sits on a platform in the middle of villages and offers dubious cures. According to villagers, his "treatment" was cheaper than the medicine prescribed by government doctors.

"An examination demonstrated that every one of them had taken infusions from one individual", Choudhury said.

"This was an important lead". It is being told that the people here used to go to a quack for treatment of diseases.

"Villagers are ignorant about hygiene", Alam said.

HIV - or the human immunodeficiency infection - is transmitted through blood transfusion, utilization of tainted needles and syringes, unprotected sex, or from mother to tyke.

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. It weakens the body's immune system, making it susceptible to various infections.
