Oh dear! Argus takes us backwards on HIV

A Tory Government, and the Argus regurgitating old myths about the transmission of HIV....feels so like the 80's.

Today the Argus reported a story of some children having mishap in a paddling pool.  The report was quite  remarkably irresponsible.  It seems we are back to ancient discredited notions of how you can catch HIV.  Can we not expect our local newspaper to do a little basic research?

I hope the kids recover soon.  I am willing to bet the farm on them not having HIV!

they didn't even find evidence of a needle?!?!

"children scrape knees whilst playing" isn't much of a headliner though, eh?
