The supposed receiver of the alleged HIV and syphilis-contaminated blood has been kicked out from the private health facility in Kumasi, where she was supposed to be on admission.

According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on MyewsGh.com, the woman was asked to go home by authorities of the private facility even though she was still in dire need of medical attention.

News of the alleged infected blood went haywire after a Facebook user, Addo-Kwabla Evans, alleged that the blood had been sold to his mother who had visited the hospital for treatment.

His alarm followed a screening of the blood by Kean Medical Center, a private health facility in Kumasi.

The case is however under investigation to ascertain the true results of the blood sample that was purchased at the KATH blood bank.
