Students' blood scare in Kalasin


Some 148 students from Khammuang Industrial And Community Education College in Kalasin were forced to undergo a blood test because of fears of possible communicable diseases after it was found that fake doctors used one needle for blood tests on many peop

The students and their families have called for college executives to take responsibility.

Kalasin governor Somsak Suwannasujarit set a remedial centre at Kham Muang Hospital after “doctors” who did blood tests for the college’s June 12 annual health check were found to be fake and to have used one needle on many students.
The centre provided a blood test for HIV. So far, none of the 148 who took the test had HIV. They were advised to take another test at the centre on Sept 28.
Somsak assigned a committee to probe the case within one week while another committee will probe the Bt100 fee collected from each student. The incident upset many parents, who might make a move to sack the college executives.
