HIV boy loses China hospital case
A court in China has dismissed a nine-year-old boyís lawsuit against a Beijing hospital and Red Cross blood centre alleged to have infected him with the HIV virus.

His parents, neither of whom has the virus, say he contracted it from a blood transfusion during surgery but the court turned down the claim for compensation because there was no solid proof the hospital and blood centre were to blame.

The child lost an earlier lawsuit because the blood centre refused to submit the blood donorís personal profile in order to protect the personís privacy, state news agency Zinhua says.

The boy tested positive for HIV in 2003 after suffering a serious case of pneumonia. His parents tested negative and therefore concluded that a blood transfusion during an operation to repair their sonís cleft palate in 2002 was the only possible source of the infection.

The hospitalís director of medical affairs denied that the case was connected to the hospital.
