Pregnant woman gets HIV after infected blood transfusion in Tamil Nadu

  • Tamil Nadu government also said stocks in all blood banks would be reviewed to ensure that such incidents did not recur

A 23-year-old pregnant woman has tested positive for HIV after the blood of a donor, who had the virus, was given to her to treat anaemia at a government hospital in Sattur, Tamil Nadu, earlier this month.

The selected donor was reportedly called and informed about his HIV positive status from the lab and thereafter the blood sample was traced. He had donated the blood on November 30, and it was transfused on December 3.

Shortly after his recent donation, he underwent a medical check-up and found out he was HIV positive.

Joint Director of Health Services, Virudhunagar, R Manoharan told PTI the woman was admitted to a private hospital in Sattur for the birth of her second child and the doctors advised her to have a blood transfusion citing haemoglobin deficiency. When he learned that he tested positive for HIV in November, he voluntarily informed the lab technicians at the Sivakasi Government Hospital where he had donated blood. A second blood test was then conducted at the hospital, which confirmed his HIV infection.

After the discovery of the pregnant woman's HIV infection, doctors said they would give her the best care. "This will not be repeated again", said Dr Senthil Raj, project director, Tamil NaduAids Control Society.

Blood brought from a blood bank was transfused to her. "The technician claims it was negative when tested", he said.

"While this incident is a serious error and has taught an important lesson to the Health Department, this should not create panic around blood donation, as the blood bank system has been extremely crucial to the success of our healthcare system". Based on their findings, two lab-technicians and a counsellor from Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre (ICTC) of Sivakasi were suspended on Monday. "It was this unit, kept in the blood bank, which was given to Sattur GH", Dr. Manoharan said.

State Health Secretary J Radhakrishnan said that an inquiry will be held to identify "all loose ends".

Meanwhile, the government has promised to bear the entire medical expense for the woman, along with offering government jobs for her and her husband. The woman, who is expected to deliver the child by the end of January, is now under the care of doctors. It is yet to be determined if the baby would be infected with HIV.
