It seems that the infection of 400 children with aids is a difficult feat to achieve by any means except deliberate ones. I would think that an article would try to get some expert opinions as to how 400 children could be infected through unsanitary conditions, and whether that was likely. While the article does not exonerate the doctors, it implies their innocence by quoting those applauding their freedom. Peotre 02:58, 25 July 2007 (UTC)Reply

That a very good observation, one that I am also interested in finding out. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 03:02, 25 July 2007 (UTC)Reply
Based on what little background I have read, there seems to be little to no evidence against them. There was a large unexplained outbreak, so the authorities blamed the staff. --SVTCobra 11:21, 25 July 2007 (UTC)Reply
