I mix my HIV Infected Blood With Zobo To Sell- Woman Confesses

Dr. Azim Kunle Ashimi, chairman of the Ogun State branch of the Nigeria Medical Association, revealed on Thursday that the Human Immunodeficiency Virus could not be transferred outside the human body

Ashimi made this claim in response to a woman who said on a Wazobia FM radio program on Wednesday night that she added HIV-positive blood she took with a needle to the zobo drinks she sold to people in her neighborhood.

The doctor said, “HIV cannot survive well outside the human body. If it is mixed with treated water, the virus will not survive.

“If you examine the zobo drink itself, it has its own acidity and putting HIV-positive blood in it will only neutralise the potency of the virus.

“If the person that is HIV-positive has a sore with blood in the mouth, it will take a high quantity of blood from the carrier to infect the person they are kissing.

The show anchor had asked listeners to call in and confess what they do in the marketplace that people are unaware of and what they aren’t proud of.

The zobo seller said, “I went to the hospital six months ago and I was told I had HIV.
“I started mixing my blood with the zobo I make to sell and I sell to many people.
“I extract my blood with a syringe and mix it in the zobo. I was a nurse before but when I was confirmed HIV positive, I had to stop.
“I’m not happy with what I have done but I am happy that I will not die alone.
“I have been doing it for six months now and I pray God will forgive me.”
