WTF is going on?

Fifty-year old Khedr Abdul-Hadi, who suffered from liver fibrosis, died a few days ago, a week after receiving a transfusion of contaminated blood at a hospital in Cairo.

It turned out that the contaminated blood bag that killed Khedr Adul-Hadi was supplied to the ministry of health by a parliamentarian and a member of the ruling National Democratic Party.

More than 250 000 contaminated blood bags were delivered to hospitals and blood banks by a company owned by the MP Hani Sorour. The company is ironically called "Haidylena for Advanced Medical Industries".

Some ministry of health officials are implicated. They ignored safety procedures that should be enforced on suppliers of blood bags.

┘ŹStrangely, another member of parliament (and member of the ruling party) Haidar Baghdadi is leading the campaign against Hani Sorour to strip him of his immunity.

Baghdadi today accused Sorour in parliament of plotting to kill him for his role in exposing the contaminated blood bags scandal and demanded 24 hour police protection for himself and his family.

This looks like a drugs deal that's gone bad, but the disgusting thing is that one man died and alot more could have died.

It will be interesting to see how this will unfold (or get covered up). After all, ducks killed more people in the 20th century than the atomic bomb (they spread the influenza virus that wiped out millions).

And did you know that an ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain? And that starfishes haven't got brains at all? And that dolphins masturbate? And that a pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes? Amazing huh?

  • The death news was only announced in the wafd news paper. It was afterwards negated by the minister of health and all TV channels. Stop feeding people out of date lies.
