212 people have been found to be HIV positive in the Battambang Province of Cambodia after being treated by an unlicensed doctor, health authorities say.

55-year-old Yem Chrin has confessed to reusing needles and operating without a valid license in treating the villagers.

Chrin has since been charged with spreading the HIV virus to others, brutal murder and operating a medical service without a license.

The 212 infected villagers were discovered after officials tested a total of 1,940 people.

Chrin’s negligence was discovered when children as young as two and elderly citizens as old as 80 tested positive for the disease.
