Now, other patients who visited the centre in the last 14 months for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections require testing for the disease, including many from across the Valencia Region.

The Department of Public Health, whilst not confirming the exact numbers of those who will need testing, is now working with the Autonomous Communities and is developing a protocol that could also include testing for HIV.
