A ‘ROGUE’ doctor infected 900 kids with HIV by REUSING syringes from the bin – but is still working as a GP.
Dr Muzaffar Ghanghro was accused of using the same needle on over 50 children at his 16p-a-visit practice in Ratodero, Pakistan.
Cops slapped him with negligence and manslaughter charges after an 1,100 patients tested positive for HIV in less than a year.
The grim total included 900 kids – and one family had FOUR children test positive after trips to Ghangro’s clinic.
But he was allowed to return to work before his trial.
Imtiaz Jalbani had six kids treated by Dr Ghangro – four of whom later tested positive for HIV.
The two youngest died within months of being infected.
Imtiaz claims he saw Dr Ghangro rummaging through an bin to find a needle for his six-year-old son.
What are the symptoms of HIV?
Most infected people experience a short illness, similar to flu, two to six weeks after coming into contact with HIV.
These symptoms, which 80 per cent of infected people experience, are a sign that their body is trying to fight HIV. They include:
- Sore throat
- Body rash
- Joint and/or muscle pain
- Swollen glands
After this illness, which normally lasts one to two weeks, HIV sufferers will have no symptoms for up to 10 years – during which time they will look and feel well.
However, the virus will continue to cause progressive damage to a person’s immune system.
Only once the immune system is already severely damaged will the person show new symptoms. These include:
- Weight loss
- Chronic diarrhoea
- Night sweats
- Skin problems
- Recurrent infections
- Serious, life-threatening illnesses
