An medical practitioner in Cambodia was charged with murder after he allegedly spread the HIV virus to more than 100 people, including children, in a remote village.
Authorities say 53-year-old Yem Chhrin admitted to reusing syringes while treating patients but claims he had no intention of spreading the virus. The ages of those infected range from 3 to 82 years old.
According to Reuters, Yem was well-liked among villagers "because of his kindness and health care treatments, which he had been carrying out for many years even though he had no formal medical training or certification.
KWQC reports 106 out of 800 people tested have tested positive for the virus. That number is expected to rise as the investigation continues.
