Cambodia investigates suspected mass HIV infection

Cambodia’s prime minister, Hun Sen, has ordered an inquiry into an apparent mass HIV infection believed to have been spread by contaminated needles, as the number of suspected cases passed 100.

Hundreds of panicked residents of the remote village of Roka, in western Battambang province, have sought testing since news of the infections emerged last week, with health officials saying a total of 106 people may have contracted the virus.

“I call for a thorough investigation into the issue,” Hun Sen said in a televised speech, urging tests of the equipment used to verify that the patients have HIV.
