More HIV Infections Found in Kyrgyzstan Hospital

August 13, 2007

On Friday, Health Ministry official Boris Shapiro said two more confirmed HIV cases bring to 13 the number of people known to have contracted HIV in a hospital in the Och region of southern Kyrgyzstan. Another three cases are suspected. Shapiro said the ministry will soon screen thousands of children who had passed through the hospital since January 2005. Of the 13 cases, nine have been diagnosed in children. The Nookatsk outbreak, which came to light last month, prompted the firing of four doctors and the reprimanding of two others at the hospital.
