Activists Say Kansas Bill May Allow HIV Positive People to Be Quarantined

Posted by on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 4:45 PM

Fox4 in Kansas City:

In an effort to protect the public from infectious diseases, a proposed bill in Kansas has some feeling ostracized. That’s because some are interpreting the bill to allow people with HIV or AIDS to be quarantined.

Right now, if a firefighter or a paramedic in Kansas is exposed to bodily fluids while treating a victim, they need a court order to get that victim’s blood tested for infectious diseases. But lawmakers are close to passing a new law eliminating that court order.

Raw Story has more.

Great idea.

25 years late but a great idea, still.....

These news stories are pretty confusing. The change in policy allowing firefighters/paramedics to better protect themselves from a variety of blood/fluid-borne diseases does not sound like a terrible idea, provided that acceptable privacy protections are included along with the law. It's not clear how that is linked to quarantining people as opposed to simply allowing workers who put themselves in vulnerable positions (to benefit everyone!) to receive the most appropriate health care.

The quoted piece above is unclear about the connection, but the law that they passed explicitly changes existing law so that the Kansas Secretary of Environment and Health can require testing, isolate or quarantine anyone afflicted with any infectious disease listed under that statute.

Isolation and quarantine are explicitly stated in the bill as potential reactions to HIV+ people receiving emergency medical care.

Fuck me.

I remember the early 1980s. For you younguns, in the early days of AIDS when we didn't really know what caused it, only that gays were dying from it, there was talk all over the place of quarantining gay men. You know. For our own protection. It was fucking insane. Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed, and they eventually isolated the virus and figured out how to test for it, and all the crazy quarantine talk died off.

Until now.

Fuck you, indeed.
If AIDS carriers had been quarantined when the virus first appeared it could have been eradicated.
Instead over 20% (and climbing) of sexually active homosexual men have HIV.
Dumbass.

@5. Don't forget the talk of making people with HIV get mandatory identifying tattoos.

Hmmmm. Forced isolation in camps and identifying tattoos. Where have I heard of that combination?

Outrageous.
Homosexuals with AIDS should be able to have unprotected sex with whomever they wish, and it is no one's business (including their sexual partners) what their medical status is.
Also it is not the business of their health care providers who might be exposed to their body fluids. caveat emptor.
My body.
My virus.
Fuck everyone else.....

@6: If everyone who was known to have HIV was quarantined, we'd still have a problem. The vast majority of transmission cases are caused by people who don't know that they're HIV+.

We Have a Problem...

CDC:

"Homosexual men represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV, accounting for 66% of all new HIV infections. Homosexual males aged 13-24 years accounted for 72% of new HIV infections among all persons aged 13 to 24. Homosexuals make up 78% of infections among all newly infected men"

CDC:

Sexual risk behaviors account for most HIV infections in homosexual males. Unprotected receptive anal sex is the sexual behavior that carries the highest risk for HIV acquisition. For sexually active homosexuals, the most effective ways to prevent HIV and many other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are to avoid anal sex. Homosexuals are at increased risk for syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, and CDC recommends that all sexually active MSM be tested annually for these STIs and be tested for HIV every 3 to 6 months.

CDC

People should avoid sex practices that might result in oral exposure to feces (e.g., oral-anal contact) to reduce the risk for intestinal infections (e.g., cryptosporidiosis, shigellosis, campylobacteriosis, amebiasis, giardiasis, LGV serovars of C. trachomatis and hepatitis A). Latex condom use alone might not reduce the risk for acquiring these fecal-orally transmitted pathogens.

Has anyone broken the news to Danny?

CDC

"Preventing HIV Infection:

The most reliable ways to avoid becoming infected with or transmitting HIV are:

> Abstain from sexual intercourse (i.e., oral, vaginal, or anal sex)

>Be in a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner"

hmmmm

Abstinence and Monogamy.

Where have we heard that before?

(hint. not from Danny.....)

Abstinence and Monogamy. That; and avoiding Anal Sex....

Science is Wonderful. Isn't it, Liberals?

All health care and emergency responders should use simple universal contact precautions as a matter of course.In cases of inadvertant exposure to people with unknown HIV or hepatitis status it is SOP to administer immedate anti-viral therapy to care givers, which has proved to be extremely effective. Holding people in quarantine, like an animal suspected of having rabies, is unnecceasary and reprehensible.

Valuable progress has been made in increasing access to HIV and AIDS services, yet greater commitment is needed around the world if the goal of universal access is to be achieved. Millions of people continue to be infected with HIV every year. The HIV community “= POZspaces.com =” claims that Their members has increased a lot in 2010. I agree that More education is key against HIV. Hope all people can find love and support, never feel lonely again!

I was please at that time. And i continue with him, he took some few details from me and told me that he shall get back to me as soon as he is through with my work. I was very happy as heard that from him. So Yesterday, as i was just coming from my friends house, Dr.abegbe called me to go for checkup in the hospital and see his marvelous work that it is now HIV negative, i was very glad to hear that from him, so i quickly rush down to the nearest hospital to found out, only to hear from my hospital doctor called Browning Lewis that i am now HIV NEGATIVE. I jump up at him with the test note, he ask me how does it happen and i recide to him all i went through with Dr.abegbe I am now glad, so i am a gentle type of person that need to share this testimonies to everyone who seek for healings, because once you get calm and quiet, so the disease get to finish your life off.
