HC orders relief to woman infected with HIV blood

Chennai, July 26 (IANS) The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Friday ordered the Tamil Nadu government to pay a compensation of Rs 25 lakh, provide a house and a job to a pregnant woman who was transfused with HIV-infected blood in a government hospital at Virudhunagar district.

The court also ordered the government to provide free medical treatment for the woman hailing from Sattur while hearing a petition for ensuring safe blood transfusion and compensation for her.

The pregnant woman was transfused with HIV-infected blood last year in December as she was anaemic at the government hospital in Sattur.

She later delivered a baby in January this year who was not affected by HIV.
