Text:HIV positive gay man Christopher Truscott has made "remarkable progress" with his behaviour despite his escape and recapture at the weekend, health authorities say. Truscott was detained after repeatedly not informing sexual partners of his HIv status. Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Alistair Humphrey said he was not overly concerned by Truscott's latest escape. "In the past I have had the impression that he had begun to try treating (escaping) as a game. He is now behaving a lot more responsibly and doesn't play games any more," Dr Humphrey said.
