Showing no regard for other people drug addicts have discarded a used needle in Stanley Street Southport. One local resident said..."its getting worse down here dozens of people are wandering around like Zombies out of their tiny minds.
Infections that used needles and sharps can pass on to other people include:
human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
Although rare, there is also a small risk of other infections being transmitted via contaminated blood, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
