A trio of deadly afflictions is ripping through a rural county in southern Indiana.
More than 130 patients
in Scott County, Ind., tested positive for HIV in less than a year,
making the community of about 24,000 people the site of one of the worst
outbreaks in decades.
Among the infected are 114 who also tested positive for another blood-borne disease — hepatitis C, which attacks the liver.
