A New Way of Transmitting HIV



Though this email that has been circulating the net for a while has been found to be untrue. We all should take precautions in public places. AIDS and many other diseases can be transmitted through blood and needles.
This is the email that I received that has been found to be False:

A new way of transmitting HIV

This is just too shocking; it is amazing to see what the world is coming to!!!!

Dear Friends,
Kindly take a couple of minutes to go through this mail. If useful may advise others also. Please pass this on to
others.

This happened in Paris recently and may happen elsewhere also. A few weeks ago, in a movie theatre, a person felt something poking from her seat. When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying, ‘You have just been infected by HIV’.The Disease Control Center (in Paris) reports many similar events in many other cities recently. All tested needles were HIV Positive.The Center also reports that needles have been found in
cash dispensers at public banking machines. We ask everyone to use extreme caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use.

A careful visual inspection should be enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger. Recently, one doctor has narrated a somewhat similar instance that happened to one of his
patients at the Priya Cinema in Delhi. A young girl, engaged and about to be married in a couple of months, was pricked while the movie was going on. The tag with the needle had the message ‘Welcome to the World of HIV family’. Though the doctors told her family that it takes about 6 months before the virus grows strong enough to start damaging the system and a healthy victim could survive about 5-6 years, the girl died in 4 months, perhaps more because of the ‘Shock thought’. We all have to be careful at public places, restrooms… God help! Just think about saving a life by sharing this message. Please, take a few seconds of your time to pass it on.
