Many are still unaware they are victims of HIV disaster

5th June 2007
People who contracted HIV in the blood 'disaster' 20 years ago could still be unaware of their condition and could have infected others with the disease, an inquiry was told yesterday. The independent inquiry into how thousands of people were exposed to HIV and hepatitis C during NHS treatment in the 80's heard there could still be people who do not know they are affected. More than 2,000 haemophiliacs died as a result of exposure to the fatal virusses in what fertility expert Lord Winston dubbed ' the worst treatment disaster in the history of the NHS'.
