The Socialist deputy Juan Luis Castro was called by the Government of Spain Sebastián Piñera to double the efforts of the Chilean health centers to try out anti-AIDS screening tests in the tenth place in the ranking of countries that increase the HIV virus in Chile.

"We are holding on to our country an enormous and scandalous situation in the ranking of 10 countries with the highest growth in HIV," he said. "Young people, or any sector that stops excessive growth in HIV decades," said MEPs Head of the Health Commission.

Castro said "today Chile can not be in a bad state, it has an uncontrolled epidemic and let's say its name, this epidemic does not have adequate control, it is advisable to travel more than 25 miles of people in the vicinity, we have not identified and not they know the virus too. "

"I want to call the Government and the Ministry of Health to take tests to renew rapidly, not only half of the Chilean municipalities, but also in places where there is a quick test. Secondly, to get the necessary and sufficient mechanisms, the coverage of those diagnosed does not stop halfway and we do not have people they should not be infected, because they did not go in time because they did not infect it. " O & # 39; Higgins Regional Deputy.

The Socialist added: "Another call is a family, because people do not talk about it, they are children under 30 years of age because they think they are intermittent, sexually or abusively sexually ill, because they believe that the virus is excluded, not just infected with AIDS but also syphilis and gonorrhea. Also, this has grown significantly in recent years. "
