TN pregnant woman tests HIV+, teen donor attempts suicide

Dec 28, 2018 09:29 IST

A teenage boy whose HIV-positive blood was passed on to a pregnant woman reportedly tried to kill himself. The blood donated by the teen was meant for his relative, but it was not used and stored in the hospital's blood bank. The woman visited the government hospital in Tamil Nadu’s Virudhunagar district for a checkup and was injected with HIV infected blood. The blood was negligently labelled safe by the hospital's lab technicians. After an initial inquiry, three health workers of the hospital's blood bank were suspended.
