Overview : March 2013, I received employment in a law firm in D.I.F.C. (Dubai International Financial Centre), when I appeared for medical test at al Muhaisna medical centre (A part of Dubai Health Authority), suspected that i have old T.B scar and I was deported immediately without given, a right to appeal.
India's well known government hospitals i.e A.I.I.M.S (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) hospital at New Delhi and L.R.S - Super specialty TB Hospital conducted checkups i.e. Skin test ( Mantoux ) twice, Chest x-ray, Blood test, Sputum test and a Chest C.T Scan.
20th January 2014 and 22nd January 2014, most recent test reports conducted from two different Pathological labs for the same test on different dates i.e. Quantiferon Tb Gold test (specially designed for detecting latent or old tuberculosis) are also Negative.
Test results : Based on my test reports, each hospital issued me the fitness certificate stating zero evidence of tuberculosis in my body.
A) X-rays cannot detect old TB : There are more than 40 reasons for lung scarring.
Here is the evidence : http://www.icomplaints.in/forty-one-41-reasons-exposing-the-rumor-of-028087.html proves it false.
B) Blood test cannot detect old TB: Mantoux test or Skin Test or P.P.D test (wikipaedia),
Here is the evidence : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantoux_test proves it false.
Clearly mentions, Mantoux test results can be false positive(50-50).
Doctors are paid to hide this fact since their salary meter is ON and 95% deportation happens on number one fake test i.e Mantoux test for your information.
Why its happening in UAE?
Otherwise, why these tests are not allowed in US, UK, Canada, Sweden, Switzerland like educated countries.
C) Quantiferon TB Gold cannot detect old TB : Quantiferon Gold test seems accurate in results, but this test also shows false positive results.
Here is the evidence : http://jcm.asm.org/content/50/9/3105.full proves it false.
Another proof :- Quantiferon Gold test done again in 2015, now it comes negative (G.C.C. Approved Authority). Mantoux test comes positive .So you can judge the accuracy of these tests very well.
D) Useless test for Old TB detection : Sputum test can only detect active TB , so it is completely impotent. 99 out of 100 comes negative.
Ironically, after our petition, online posts and local awareness , D.H.A doctors again admitted their mistake, stating that this scar can be due to other reasons as well. In 2013, they used to judge it as just Old TB scar.
As per my knowledge and experience, its nothing more than clear-cut cheating patients by doing fake testing, in my case it was manipulation of test reports agreed by D.H.A on an email conversation with me and there are other malpractices done by D.H.A behind the curtain, that i can disclose on special requests.
Mantoux test and Quantiferon Gold test done in two different semesters for myself are giving wrong results.This time both tests are showing near to false positive. Wikipedia is correct but doctors in Gulf countries are doing wrong by hiding this information.
Any person without lung scar or never had old or active TB in his life , his test reports will show positive results. Try Mantoux and Quantiferon 2-3 times you will know the secret facts.
Conclusion : Hence proved, Dubai health authority is performing tests which are undeveloped and immature. Doctors should first try it twice on their own body. 100% confirm they will find old TB in their body.
DEPORTATION ON WHAT GROUND ???
International organisations do not recognize these tests to confirm some one's medical illness in the past.
As per chest specialists, there is no medicine invented that can remove these scars. Chest specialist confirms that scars goes on its own, as per them,there are lot of cases wherein scars disappeared after couple of months or years on case to case basis.
Suggestion : If you do not have active tuberculosis and the hospital forces you to take TB medicines, please do not accept it . It has severe side effects on your healthy body. Unless you have active TB or severe situation.
Case of Discrimination : http://www.thenational.ae/news/uae-news/ health/deportation-laws-reform-lies-dormant clearly mentioned by Dr. Mario Raviglione [Director at W.H.O), this is absolute discrimination.
Comments : Until you are in U.A.E, you have the right to cross examine and argue with your doctors, human rights and news media are the only medicine for victims, based on the information given in this petition. Doctors cannot force you, contrarily they are admitting their judgements. There are many cases where in deportation was stopped.
Collectively, doctors in G.C.C are now planning to change this policy for once and all.
