HIV can't be spread by breathing. if an HIV pos patient engages in unprotected sex without informing his partner(s), he/she can be arrested.
as this idiot proves, people will act in their own best interest. sometimes they do it out of fear. sometimes they are just SOB's.
i don't see much difference between what this person did and the HIV patient who knowingly exposes others.
it's worth thinking about. we have gamed bio-weapons for a long time. in the past, we knew that it was a fairly small risk that a weapon would come in from outside the us. bio-weapons are not that easy to make, maintain, and transport. now we have people willing to blow themselves up. they would not hesitate to become walking weapons. how far are we willing to go?
if this little POS sues, and i wouldn't be surprised, the courts could weaken the NHS's ability to quarantine or isolate patients. is that good, or bad? how do we balance rights against the public good?
