Why did Wei Wei catch AIDS? Father Zhao Hao (alias) said that after his son confirmed (technical terminology) infection with HIV, he and his wife and immediate relatives, including the nanny, have taken blood tests, are no problem, so he suspected that the child was infected during hospitalization in Guiyang Childrens Hospital.
July 27, Guiyang City Health and Family Planning Commission official website on the Guiyang City, Guizhou Province, two-year-old infants suffering from AIDS information, the notice said that after the investigation of blood safety and medical personnel, departments, the use of equipment, no abnormalities were found. After that, the Guizhou Provincial Health and Family Planning Commission set up a review group to carry out the review under the guidance of four national experts.
On the afternoon of August 9, Guizhou Provincial Health Planning Committee on Weiwei HIV infection checks, the family members were briefed.
The report said that due to the limitations of the functions of the inspection team and epidemiological investigation methods, and the longer time away from children may be infected with HIV, the inspection team was unable to obtain more valuable clues from the relevant parties and medical staff, the source of infection has not yet been found, requesting the Guiyang Health Planning Commission to continue to make every effort to find the source of infection.
Wei Weis family members did not accept the result. They thought it was too hasty and refused to sign on the spot.
Admission: eating apples, aggravating illness
Wei Wei came to the world through IVF.
In 2015, Zhao Hao, 46, and Tang Yan, 34, his wife (not her real name), chose Guiyang Maternal and Child Health Hospital (Guiyang Childrens Hospital and Guiyang Maternal and Child Health Hospital two brands, actually a hospital) as test-tube babies.
A year later, in early June 2016, Tang Yan gave birth to his son Wei Wei in Guiyang Maternal and Child Health-Care Hospital. Weiweis arrival brought infinite joy to the family. Zhao Hao thought that he and his wife were going to work and worried that his grandmother could not take care of the children alone, so he asked a nanny to take care of them outside.
Zhao Hao said Weiwei had been healthy since he was born. By the time he was one year and four months old, Weiwei would call his parents and begin to practice walking. The whole family was happy.
Wei Wei has a habit of drinking milk before going to bed. At noon on October 28, 2017, Wei Wei ate lunch and ate apples. At nap time, Grandma was ready to feed Weiwei. When she found an apple in Weiweis mouth, she asked him to spit it out. Unexpectedly, Weiwei was suffocated and sent to Guiyang Maternal and Child Health Hospital for emergency treatment.
Weiwei was admitted to the hospital at the time of the medical records, Weiwei was refreshed, slightly soft, reaction can be, pharynx congestion, tonsil swelling, no pus and herpes, face and lip cyanosis, both lungs breathing sound thick, did not smell dry and wet rales, no special abdominal and nervous system examination, no rash on both feet and hands, doctors diagnosed Weiwei. Is Weis condition bronchitis and bronchial foreign body? Brain damage?

Zhao Hao, who rushed to the hospital from the unit, thought that the child would be sober, and the problem should not be too serious. After more than an hour of treatment, Ke Weiwei was suddenly aggravated and sent to the intensive care unit of Guiyang Childrens Hospital.
After entering the intensive care unit, Wei Wei left his familys sight for the first time. Every day, the family members could only tell the childs condition through the doctors report. Zhao Hao remembered the doctor said at that time, Weiwei lung bleeding, the mortality rate of this disease is very high, to 95% or more, your baby lives, lung bleeding death rate is so high did not go away.

In November 21, 2017, the doctor agreed to Wei Weis discharge. After returning home, his family found Wei Weis spirit was particularly bad, and his breathing was abnormal. In November 23rd, Wei Wei was sent to the intensive care unit of Guiyang childrens hospital again.
Transfer: suspected HIV infection
Wei Wei stayed in the hospital until December 7, 2017. During this period, Wei Wei has experienced invasive treatment such as bronchoscope, tracheal intubation, and had a history of blood transfusion.
During the hospitalization period of more than one month, Weiweis condition did not improve, but showed signs of aggravation.
On the morning of December 7th, Wei Wei was transferred to the childrens Hospital of Chongqing Medical University. On admission, the doctor found that Weiweis blood test results were positive and suspected to be infected with HIV. The doctor timely informed Guiyang Childrens Hospital of this result and reported it to the local CDC department.
Guiyang Childrens Hospital tested Weiweis blood samples again before admission, the results were still negative, and the CDC Department passed the blood test, but only suspected, so Weiwei was not confirmed to be infected with HIV.
Zhao Hao said that although the child was not confirmed, but their husband and wife still went to the hospital for a check-up, but neither of them had any problems.
Weiweis illness worsened sharply, because of upper respiratory tract obstruction, a sputum blockage will kill the child.
To save Weiwei, the Childrens Hospital Affiliated to Chongqing Medical University performed laryngotracheoplasty for Weiwei. Doctors removed a cartilage from Weiweis ribs and implanted it into the laryngeal duct to enlarge the obstruction and ensure the smooth passage of the laryngeal duct. 10 days later, Wei Wei suddenly appeared respiratory failure. The doctor performed tracheotomy for Wei Wei all night.
To facilitate Gu Weiweis photo, father Zhao Hao rented a 80 yuan daily cottage beside the hospital. During the Spring Festival, the family accompanied the child in the hospital.
In March 15th of this year, Wei Wei, who was not extubbed, was taken back to Guiyang by his family. Zhao Hao sold his mothers house and used to heal his sons debts.
Weiweis recovery was not satisfactory. Families thought the child was young, but two months later the child developed a sustained low fever. On June 1, Weiwei was sent to the Affiliated Hospital of Guizhou Medical University. His blood test showed that Weiwei was still positive for HIV antibody.
Zhao Hao said that before in Chongqing they did not attach great importance to, first, there is no confirmation, and their husband and wife testing is not a problem, but the childs test is still positive, causing a high degree of vigilance in the family, Is it because of the infection of this disease, coupled with the lack of timely symptomatic medication, resulting in low immunity of the child, the condition of the disease? Will recovery be so slow?
Confirmation: the child is born, and the article is for argument.
On July 2, Guiyang Public Health Treatment Center sent Weiweis blood samples to Guizhou Provincial Clinical Laboratory to confirm laboratory testing for AIDS. On July 5, Weiwei confirmed that the HIV antibody test report sheet was positive, and the report sheet also required reporting as required.
The childrens HIV antibody confirmatory test report is positive. The source is red star news.
Wei Wei infected with HIV, so that the original harmony of the family is no longer happy, everyones mood is very heavy, Zhao Hao said, do not know what will happen next second.
Everything has changed. The father, who is nearly fifty, is anxious day and night, and hardly ever has a good sleep. He did not understand, the childs disease is how, the son entered the Guiyang Childrens Hospital, the examination is negative, the child has been living in the ICU during hospitalization, closed treatment, family members can not touch the child at all, why the son infected with HIV?
There are only three ways of HIV infection: mother and baby, blood and sex. Wei Wei is only two years old this year, the last route of transmission can be ruled out, parents and usually contact with Wei Weis grandmother and nanny, are also blood tests, are not HIV carriers, then the rest of the blood transmission, Zhao Hao believes that the problem is most likely to arise in Guiyang Childrens Hospital.
To make matters worse, he posted the story online, and many unknown users questioned their motives, and some even thought the children were not their own.
On August 5, in the face of queries from netizens, he accepted an interview with Red Star News, hoping to clarify to netizens: after DNA identification, Wei Wei is their biological child, published on the Internet, the purpose is to ask the relevant departments to find the source of infection, to give his son a story.
Review results: no source of infection was found, parents refused to sign.
On June 28 and July 13, Weiweis family complained to Guiyang Health Planning Commission and Guizhou Health Planning Commission. On July 27, Guiyang Health and Family Planning Commission website on the Guiyang City, Guizhou Province, two-year-old infants suffering from AIDS a briefing, the briefing said that after the investigation of blood safety and medical personnel, departments, the use of equipment, no abnormal situation was found.
