Punjab State Aids Control Society (PSACS) has said in its pamphlet that AIDS can be transmitted by shaking hands and also through using utensils used by an infected person in a shocking case of spreading misinformation.
The Society has published a pamphlet that is meant for spreading awareness about AIDS. However, it is apparently spreading information that is grossly mistaken.
As per a report published in India Today, the details of the pamphlet (written in Punjabi) noted that AIDS can be transmitted by shaking hands. It said AIDS can even spread through using utensils used by an AIDS infected person.
Not only that, PSACS, through the pamphlet, even went on to say that sharing things like mobile phones, computers used by an infected person and using toilets used by an infected person can pass on a disease to other people.
