The Peruvian said he was attacked as it approached the Avenida Paulista.
She's doing prophylaxis for HIV.

The Peruvian doctor said you think that these reports would be urban legends and was perplexed before the event. Doing PEP, post exposure prophylaxis and is going through a sad suffering as the drugs have difficult side effects of being supported.
This causes me, the publisher of this site, to think about people and perhaps to rethink their sexual and / or affective lives. In the case of the Peruvian doctor, however, it is hard to believe that he may have been infected and there is, in her speech, a doctor, the claim that HIV would survive for about an hour outside the human environment. His survival is three minutes, at most five, and this can serve as a consolation, given the fact that a person who I attended for WhatsApp told me that there in Divinópolis, in the interior of Minas Gerais, the doctor did not even know the what is window period (…).
"We think that this is an urban legend and when it happens, we get shaken, frightened by this evil action."
This was the way a Peruvian doctor found to define the feeling she had experienced after being attacked by a man, who jabbed the needle of a syringe on his back (the link opens in another window on another site) on Wednesday (October 22), near the corner of the avenues and Pamplona Paulista, central region of São Paulo.
She only realized that he had received a possible needled to see another woman on the same sidewalk be hit too, moments after skewer it.
"Suddenly, I felt a pressure on my back, as if it were the tip of a pen. I turned around and thought it would be some acquaintance catching my attention, joking. That's when I saw a tall, thin, dark man passing by me, 40 years old, in green sweatpants with white stripes. He kept walking to the corner of Pamplona and Paulista, and then I saw him take a syringe from his sleeve and pierce another girl. "
The doctor claims to have talked to the other possible victim, but they separated afterwards. "I ran to reach the girl and he crossed Paulista Avenue. We lose sight of him. I asked the girl, who was injured on the butt, if she had been assaulted. She said she would walk into the mall to see if she had ever been injured. We split up there. "
Because of the incident and the risks it could pose, medical proceeded to take antiretroviral medication.
"I went to a hospital nearby and they recommended going to the Emilio Ribas Hospital, where applicable the PEP [acronym designating postexposure prophylaxis]. They gave me medication for seven days and seek STD center [Sexually Transmitted Diseases] for the first serology control. I took the medication 28 days and am taking, "said the doctor.
She told the G1 who ran several serology tests for some STDs and they resulted as non-reagents.
"These tests serve to show if I already had these infections before the attack, I would not know if I would have already been infected because the immune window is 30 days and only after doing the PEP is that I will start by waiting to know if I was infected at that time. I'll have to do other regular exams for a year. " [A note of Soropositivo.Org Editor: I do not know how the monitoring of infectious diseases such as HIV in Peru, but in Brazil the window period is 30 days to 99% of the people and the 1 percent remaining is to 60 days. What caused me "species in writing" is not mentioned a test for Hepatitis C, more contagious than HIV, whose etiological agent, HCV, can survive, for example, a glass ink of a tatuador for up to eight days! I have one or two contacts in Emilio Ribas and I will try better to know about it and when I have this information in hand, if I have them, I update this article].
As says G1, according her (it seems to me that the G1 not want to commit to information that certainly has no expertise for this):
"The HIV virus lives out of the body for up to an hour, but it is very difficult to transmit through such a rapid drilling. [I made slight mention of this in the previous paragraph, but it should be noted that complete HIV installation (sic) depends on a number of factors in how many copies of viral RNA there would be on that needle and, thinking more deeply, it would have to inject the blood contaminated, and thereafter to the second attack, should be preceded by a "new blood load with a high concentration of HIV in this blood, ie blood or blood plasma would be required in the syringe with a high viral load" !.
As we will never know, I believe, where you are and what happened to the girl who received the second bite on the buttocks, it will be difficult to reach a conclusion on that. Moreover, we do not know if the doctor from Peru would have "been 1ª victim" of these attacks I get to think that those who perpetrate these attacks may be suffering from a psychiatric problem = or even a stress disorder post-traumatic stress disorder (receive this diagnosis it is not a good experience) and try to assess whether he had a criminal intent - long for me to excuse or justify such a procedure and, if he is suffering from mental problems, need psychiatric support, therapy and isolation from society in psychiatric clinic until he can, RECEIVING TREATMENT AND DINO HUMANIZED if recompose diagnosis (I'm launching a corollary, all this may be a mistake of mine) to get back to life.
The doctor goes on smoothly:
"I do not know what it contained in that syringe, if it had any fluid. I was punctured by a syringe with unknown content. Care is protocol, care was basic protocol by contact with biological agents, natural. "
The doctor says he felt it would be better to change your daily routine for fear of leaving home. (We, the cidadães well, fear hostages, trapped in our homes)
“In fact, it was a stress. I am quiet from the standpoint of physical health, the only thing that bothers me is taking a medication that is very strong and has many side effects. It was an event that really changed my routine, I had to go to a police station, the IML, do blood tests. It stirred my confidence going out, too pay more attention to my surroundings, I'm shaken because not expected, was dumbfounded, so I did not react and did not think to call the police in time. "
This is an invitation to reflection for people who think they are living in an aseptic environment and ignore, and it gets to be little uncomfortable for us, people living with HIV. What is interesting is to bring to light this statement: "strong remedies, unpleasant side effects, blah blah blah ... and cause us to see things as certain aliennados like I'm going down colr
We who live with AIDS, we will have if we want to live, take this medicine ad infinitum and I call you, possibly an entrepreneur who may be reading this article, if it would not be a good step in initiating an inclusive criterion of HIV positive or living with AIDS (two things naturally linked and simultaneously diffuse) to have "some space, (and why not?), a bank of hours where the seropositive employee who owes no satisfaction to any other employee and only to the employer and the HR sector, which should be maintained silently exempt and watertight, with the questions that some employee could make to HR, giving the slight malleability of schedule or even the Home Office (I am editing this text in the metro, north-south line and I have just arrived in santana, where I go down ).

According to the Institute of Infectious Diseases Emilio Ribas, "all guidelines were given and appropriate procedures were taken" in relation to the patient. According to the institute, "cases like these are rare" and their "risks for transmission of infectious diseases are considered minimal."
The G1 also informed that a user of Facebook reported the episode, she said, it would have occurred with a friend who is a doctor. She claims that around 17h, both walked down the avenue when a man injected a needle in the back of the woman.
"She felt a pressure on the back, but did not realize he had been stuck with a needle. The man calmly went to his side, hiding the material and in front pierced the girl who was walking in front of her on the butt, "he wrote.
