Judge acquits 4 doctors in Canada's tainted blood trial
CBC News · Posted: Oct 01, 2007 2:55 PM ET

"The ruling in Canada's first criminal trial on the tainted blood scandal reflects only one small part of what is considered Canada's worst preventable public health disaster [emphsis add].
Twenty-thousand people contracted hepatitis C and more than 1,000 were infected with HIV through the transfusion of blood and blood products in the 1980s and 1990s. It's not clear how many people have died as a result, but in 1997 the toll reached 3,000. "
