Teenage Boy's HIV Positive Blood injected into Pregnant Woman attempts suicide

Chennai sources stated that teenage boy whose HIV-positive blood was passed on to a pregnant woman, in a case of shocking medical negligence that has triggered a major controversy in Tamilnadu, reportedly tried to kill himself as his family struggled to deal with the fallout. Earlier the woman visited the government hospital in Virudhunagar district's Sattur on December 3 for a prenatal checkup when she was found to be anaemic.

Reportedly she was advised blood transfusion and four days after the procedure, it was found that the blood transfused was HIV-infected. Meanwhile the blood was negligently labelled safe by the hospital's lab technicians. Furthermore the blood donated by the teen was meant for his relative, but it was not used and stored in the hospital's blood bank. Further on inquiry, it was found that the donor was contracted HIV as early as 2016 when he donated blood at a camp in Sattur.

Moreover when teen was contacted to be informed of the infection, he was out of town and was asked to report to the hospital as early as possible. Perhaps the Madras High Court took up the matter on Thursday and directed the state government to file a status report by January 3. Reportedly the court took up the matter after two advocates, George Williams and Krishnamoorthy, made mention of the case.
