Metro – Blood victims treated like lab chimps 

The Metro says patients who were later injected with a blood plasma product that killed them or ruined their lives were compared to chimpanzees by medical experts.

More than 30,000 people across Britain were infected with hepatitis and HIV after being injected with ‘dangerous’ blood products in the 1970s and 1980s.
