The ministry says a mother and her child in the Kara-Suu district appear to have been infected in the Osh city hospital.

In July, the Kyrgyz president's office ordered prosecutors and the Health Ministry to establish whether 11 residents -- including nine children -- in Osh's Nookat district had been infected with HIV because of doctors' negligence.
