Quite unfortunately this story of Fauci et al in Florence in true.

As you probably read in the press, a perfectly healthy young lady had a fatal stroke (a broken cerebral artery, I guess) and it was decided to transplant her organs.

The biologist who performed the analysis read the wrong response (HIV negative instead of positive) and the organs were successfully transplanted into three patients.

As soon as they realized that the organs came from a HIV positive (who did not know about it, and was perfectly fine), the hell broke.
