Man wrongly diagnosed of being HIV positive loses job



An Indian man from Uttrakhand was denied a visa to work in Dubai after he was wrongly diagnosed as being HIV positive by a lab in south Delhi .
Salim Ahmed was referred to Neutech Medical Centre in New Friends Colony, Delhi , by a tout to get a mandatory medical check - up that is needed before applying for a work visa to United Arab Emirates. The lab later told him that he was HIV positive .
Since the UAE restricts the entry of people who are HIV positive from seeking jobs and residence in the country , Ahmed was declared unfit for travel to Dubai based on the HIV positive report from the diagnostic centre on February 1 .
However , to confirm the diagnosis , Ahmed got himself retested at a private laboratory in Gurugram on February 10 and again at a Community Health Centre in Jaspur , Udham Singh Nagar in Uttarakhand on February 13 .
He tested negative for HIV in both places , according to Hindustantimes .
Delhi Medical Council has called for strict action against the erring centre as “such a centre may not be equipped or have proper qualified doctors to run laboratory test. ”
