  • Infected Blood: The PM apologies for a 50 year cover-up

    20 MAY 2024 · The infected blood scandal was "not an accident" and its failures lie with "successive governments, the NHS, and blood services", a public inquiry has found.  More than 30,000 people were infected with HIV and hepatitis C from 1970 to 1991 after being given contaminated blood products and transfusions - about 3,000 of whom have since died. Sir Brian Langstaff, who chaired the inquiry, said the scale of what happened was "horrifying".  On the Sky News Daily, Matt Barbet talks to Sky's health correspondent Ashish Joshi about the report and Rosamund Cooper who was given blood products contaminated with Hepatitis C.  Producer: Soila Apparicio  Editor: Philly Beaumont
