The health department had recently ordered an investigation to be conducted by a two-member committee following unusually high number of HIV cases being reported from the area.
The camps were set up after several suspected HIV cases showed up during routine tests at the district hospitals in Bangarmau town in Unnai late previous year, he added.
According to department officials, Chowdhary was appointed the new CMO on December 28 and since he was aware of the problem, he sent teams to Bangarmau where 566 people were screened at three camps held on January 24, 25 and 27. A case has been registered against the quack Rajendra Kumar at Bangarmau police station, the CMO said.
After interviewing the affected persons, officials suspected that the high incidence of HIV could be due to a quack who used a single infected syringe to treat patients in the area.
Locals allege that the quack used to use one syringe for injections on every patient and possibly infected others by a needle used on an Aids patient.

Hot tea linked to esophageal cancer in smokers, drinkers
Researchers in China found a link between drinking scalding hot tea and esophageal cancer in people who smoke and drink alcohol. Even those who don't touch alcohol or cigarettes, but drink hot tea or coffee, could also be at risk, experts warned.
"40 positive cases have been found". All patients who tested positive for HIV have been referred to Kanpur for Anti-retroviral Therapy (ART).
"We had set up health camps where these cases were found to be confirmed". "We will also take action against doctors practicing without proper licenses or degrees". Which is what likely sparked the small outbreak of HIV.
"An investigation showed that nearly all of them had taken injections from one person", Choudhury said.
Siddharth Nath Singh, Uttar Pradesh health minister, promised a crackdown on unqualified medics across the state. Police say that while disguising himself as a doctor, Yadav saw patients who sought treatment for common colds, coughs, and diarrhea. "A quack is not supposed to administer injections and stern action should be taken against the individual", he said.
"During a routine screening from April to July, 12 HIV positive cases were reported from Bangarmau tehsil alone".
