Nearly One in Three People With HIV Do Not Know

A very scary statistic as reported by AFP:

Almost one in three people infected with the virus that causes AIDS do not know they have the disease, increasing the risk of infection, the European Commission warned Monday.

In a document on combatting AIDS more than a quarter century after it surfaced, the EU’s executive arm said now was not the time for Europe to drop its guard, noting that the figure was up to double in some neighbour nations.

And while efficient treatments exist to slow the evolution of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), no vaccine or cure has been found.
