Summary : 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 named government hospitals, 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 - Reports Negative
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.
⦿ X-rays cannot detect old TB: There are more than 40 reasons for lung scarring.Evidence: http://www.icomplaints.in/forty-one-41-reasons-exposing-the-rumor-of-028087.html proves it false.
⦿ Blood test cannot detect old TB: Mantoux test or Skin Test or P.P.D test (wikipaedia),Evidence: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantoux_test proves it false.
☛ Clearly mentions, Mantoux test shows false positive results.
Doctors are funded to hide this fact since their salary meter is ON and 95% deportation happens on an unreliable test termed as Mantoux test. Why the said tests are not certified in US, UK, Canada, Sweden, Switzerland like well-educated countries.
⦿ Quantiferon TB Gold cannot detect old TB: Quantiferon Gold test appears an accurate in results, but this test also shows false positive results.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.
⦿ Hopeless test for Old TB detection: Sputum test can only discover active T.B , so it is absolutely impotent. 99:100 subjects fall outs negative.
Surprisingly, after our petition and online posts started getting viral, D.H.A doctors admitted their mistake, stating that this scar can be due to other reasons as well. In 2013, they used to assume it as just Old TB scar.
☛ As per the evidences and reports, it’s nothing more than cheating patients by doing bogus testing.
Mantoux test and Quantiferon Gold test done in two different stages for myself are showing erroneous results (Positive & Negative)both. Wikipedia is correct but doctors in Gulf countries are doing wrong by concealing this information. Any person devoid of lung scar or never had old or active TB in his life, his/her test reports will display flawed reports. Try Mantoux and Quantiferon multiple times you will know the hidden actualities.
☛ Conclusion: Apparently, Dubai health authority is performing tests which are undeveloped and incorrect. Doctors should first try Mantoux test twice on their own body and then advise others. 100% confirm they will find old TB in their own body.
International organizations do not recommend the said tests to confirm some one's medical illness in the past.
☛ As per chest specialists, there is no medicine invented yet, that can eliminate chest scars. Chest specialist confirms that marks goes on its own without medicine and as per them, there are lots of cases wherein scars vanished after couple of months or years on case to case basis.
☛ Suggestion: If you have no sign of active tuberculosis and the hospital forces you to take TB medicines, please do not accept. It is hazardous for a 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.
☛ Interpretation: After my deportation, I informed Indian media, eventually D.H.A. apologized their blunders via written email, D.H.A. offered me to come back to U.A.E. on D.H.A's visit visa provided I do not complaint against their doctors but I did not accepted this offer.
While in U.A.E, you are privileged to interrogate and argue with your doctors. After deportation, Indian media is the only resort to force doctors to remove your ban. There are many cases where in deportation put on hold due to fear of media.Collectively, doctors in G.C.C are now planning to change this policy for once and all. With you always ☆☆☆
