The nurse in training disclosed her dismay at her predicament when she realised what had happened.

She said:

“At first I had not thought about it at all and then I felt behind and got a big shock. I immediately panicked and trembled all over. I just cried.

“Doctors have said that it will take up to one month before the results are known.

“Until then, I am in constant uncertainty. Hopefully I was not infected with AIDS. This is my greatest fear.”
