I'm not sure how this can be seen as a regulatory failure rather a regulatory success. Were it not for regulatory agencies, he'd still be operating. Saying that it should have been caught sooner is an arguement for stronger regulation and more regulatory oversight.


If this was a regulatory success, I'd hate to see what a failure looks like.

The guy continuing to operate?

Also, bear in mind that they've contacted every patient he ever had that there's a record of to say "hey, this guy was caught not following proper procedure and so you may have been at risk."

He wasn't injecting people with HIV, it's more like being a tattoo parlor that doesn't use clean inks and needles.

That's a pretty low bar to set.

That's the Sharia Law they were concerned about.

Well, the headline is a bit sensationalist (surprise surprise). They found out he was violating proper procedures and shut him down, then they contacted all his patients to have them tested, free of charge, in case his unsafe practices might have led to infection.

There's no evidence presented in the article that anyone was exposed to HIV or hepatitis, just that this guy wasn't taking the proper precautions to make sure they weren't, and was shut down. That's what regulators do.
