    Dear Friends,

    A few weeks ago, in a movie theatre, a person felt something poking
    from her seat.When she got up to see what it was, she found a needle
    sticking out of the seat with a note attached saying "You have just been
    infected by HIV". The Disease Control Center (in Paris ) reports many similar events in many other
    cities recently. All tested needles were HIV Positive.

    The Center also reports that needles have been found in cash
    dispensers at public banking machines.We ask everyone to use extreme
    caution when faced with this kind of situation. All public chairs/seats
    should be inspected with vigilance and caution before use. A careful
    visual inspection should be
    enough. In addition, they ask that each of you pass this message along
    to all members of your family and your friends of the potential danger.

    Recently, one doctor has narrated a somewhat similar instance that
    hppened to one of his patients at the Priya Cinema in Delhi . A young girl,
    engaged and about to be married in a couple of months, was pricked
    while the movie was going on. The tag with the needle had the message welcome to the
    World of HIV family". Though the doctors told her family that it takes
    about 6 months before the virus grows strong enough to start damaging the
    system and a healthy victim could survive about 5-6 years, the girl
    died in 4 months, perhaps more because of the "Shock thought".

    We all have to be careful at public places, rest God help! Just think
    about saving a life by forwarding this message. Please, take a few
    seconds of your time to pass along.

    Kindly pass this to every one. Probably ur this can help some save his/her life!

    hey Very shocking indeed.....
    anyways.. can anything be done if recognized instantanuously, like if tomorrow i get poked and there is a hospital within a 30 seconds run, can anything be done... like 100% blood transfusion or something? cost doesnt matter but really CAN ANYTHING BE DONE INSTANTLY?

    Well, this is old news. It has been happening in USA since a couple of years. It has stopped now. But, it will not happen in India. I dont believe that it happened here.

    It's totally false news just spread to create confusion among the crowd. It just isn't true. Please do not spread such a thing without confirming it's validity.

    Viruses aren't known to survive for long outside the host.
    Even if they do.......we can keep calm and not copy+paste forwards in forums....

    yes its true, the HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) cant servive outside human body (blood). If the needles or syringes contains some ammount of blood then there is some possibility.

    Its not just the HIV...Any virus always needs a live cell to survive in. Once out of a live cell, its survival is very less, unless it is crystallised by extreme cold...!!!

    The Priya incident is true AFAIK. But this happened like half a decade ago. But still I do check the seats before sitting at Priya ;)

    a virus needs a cell to replicate, NOT to survive! this is the basic difference between a virus and other microorganisms! others like the bacteria, protista (amoeba, euglena etc). need a medium. if they do not get it, they die. only freezing can preserve them.

    but this is not the case wid virus! when outside the cell, viruses are dormant. they are NOT dead! that is why viruses are called the missing link between the living and the dead and hence the hue and cry in the classificatin of virus in the living kingdom!

    haha... i dont goto theatres, just wait for it to be shown on StarMovies/HBO, etc. as I am not much of a movie buff...

    But still, such rumours can cause people away from theatres and cause lotsa havoc. as the sify post reads, it is definitely caused by Sadists... or rather I would call them friendless and heartless fools, coz even if they had one of the two, they would not have started such hoaxes....
