HIV Needle Hoax chain letter

Subject: HIV


(Don't avoid Pls read this mail)
FROM S. Dinesh Gopinath, I.A.S, Director of Medical
& Research Div,

Dear Friends,

Kindly take a couple of minutes to go thru 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 HI V 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
hppened 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, rest God help! Just think
about saving a life by
forwarding this message. Please, take a few seconds
of your time to pass

With Regards, S. Dinesh Gopinath,
I.A.S, Director of Medical & Research Div, Chennai.

Rather than forwarding irrelevant mails, kindly pass
this to every one.
Probably ur mail can help some save his/her life.
