Section 237. Transmission of a communicable disease

A penalty of a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years shall be applied to any person who transmits a communicable disease which causes considerable damage to another person's body or health. Anyone who exposes another person to such risk of infection, shall be punished in the same way.
The first paragraph does not apply to a sexually transmitted disease when the person who has been infected or exposed to a risk of infection has consented in advance.
The first paragraph also does not apply when prudent infection control measures have been observed.
The penalty for a grossly negligent offence is a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year.
