Today in a Belgian newspaper: http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/960/Buiten...28/Oostenrijkse-patient-kreeg-hiv-bloed.dhtml The patient received blood contaminated with HIV in an Austrian clinic. Impossible? Apparently not. The blood was tested, the virus was not found, so the patient received the blood...and got infected. And now the horrifying part: according to the Red-Cross it was not possible to find the virus with the current tests. The risk of hiv in the blood was 1 to 2.5 million... What are they talking about?! Are patients all over the world at risk?! On the other hand, it again shows how difficult it is to find a virus. Imagine a slow replicating virus, which hiv is not at all. Best regards, OS.
