Fake doctor in India may have infected 21 people with HIV

The camps were set up after several suspected HIV cases showed up amid routine testing at district hospitals late previous year, he said.

Top health department officials in Unnao were told about a quack transmitting HIV by reusing syringe as early as July 2017, according to officials and an official memo of health department, but they did not take action.

The committee held screening camps in which it was discovered that in the name of cheap treatment, a person had used a common syringe.

A criminal case was filed against the quack, identified as Rajendra Kumar, on Tuesday.

He also asked the U.S. to ensure that all American financial institutions stop all transactions of the Yameen regime's leaders. He claimed he was ousted as president and made to resign at gunpoint by police and military officers in February 2012.

Reports say the news of the infections broke after the victims, including children, were diagnosed at a health camp organised by an NGO in November previous year in Bangarmau city of Unnao district.

India's health department then launched an investigation and set up three screening camps for the town's residents.

He is a quack, Choudhary said. Of those, 9,100 were children under the age of 15.

The therapy involves a combination of anti-retroviral drugs to suppress HIV and stop its progression.

India at the end of 2016 had an estimated 2.1 million people living with HIV, according to UNAIDS. Of the 566 people screened, 33 were confirmed HIV positive, the official 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. For ₹10, he would provide both medicine and injection to the patients.
