Two hospitals in Xi’an City, capital of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, have been sued for allegedly wrongly diagnosing a 70-year-old woman as HIV positive and publishing her details online.

The woman surnamed Cao yesterday handed in her lawsuit to Xishan District People’s Court in her hometown in Kunming, capital of southwest China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, today’s Kunming-based City News reported.
