2 people infected with HIV through used needles

The health officer said two people contracted HIV virus through the used of dirty needles after having vampire facials at a health spa.

Both patients contracted the virus after visiting VIP Spa for anti- aging facial which had been closed last September over the issues of how they handled needles, and whether it had a licence to perform the procedures.

The New Mexico Department of Health said: “While over 100 VIP Spa clients have already been tested, NMDOH is reaching out to ensure that testing and counseling services are available for individuals who received injection related services at the VIP Spa.

“Testing is important for everyone as there are effective treatments for HIV and many hepatitis infections.” Said by Kathy Kunkel.
