'Red Shirt' blood had HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C viruses

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Friday confirmed that some blood samples from the 'Red Shirt' activists, splashed as part of their blood-splashing activities last month, were contaminated with the HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C viruses. There can be a possible outbreak of diseases.

I personally find this action socially unethical. Clean and healthy blood could have been put to better use like donating them to someone who is in need of a blood transfusion.
