He said that people who had received blood transfusion before 1997 to go in for a blood check up to screen against the deadly virus Hepatitis C. This because the routine blood screening procedure was initiate after 1997 and erase all doubts that people who had undergone transfusion before that might be infected with the disease.

He said this at the health seminar on Hepatitis C that there was an increase in the number of patients from 33 in 1996 to 745 in 2004.

This increase was detected after the blood screening tests were done on the foreign workers and drug addicts.
