Default Facts about HIV.

• HIV (virus) requires ONLY Blood or Semen as medium to transmit from one body to another

• HIV can not transmit even through Saliva (mucous) i.e. even if HIV-infected patient coughs and another person is exposed to his sputum (cough), the virus still can not transmit because concentration of virus particles in sputum is almost NIL & exposure to air anyway kills virus in fraction of seconds

• In case HIV-infected person got an injury (like the cut in below mentioned story) and he is bleeding, the virus can transmit to another person only if another person has a cut/wound in his body & that too when blood from both person comes in contact with each other (this is also very very rare unless bleeding is very high) and not otherwise

• HIV can never survive in any other liquid medium also other than blood or semen (& please for God sake … never in Pani Puri wala pani)

• Even if one drinks an HIV infected blood (or semen) of someone (ingest through Gastro Intestinal track), the virus can not survive in the acidic pH of stomach. Highest extent of acidity is 0 (practically not possible) so imagine 1 as pH which is in our stomach. (This pH can bun your own finger in less than a second if you dip in that acid).

• Exposure of less than 1 second in AIR KILLS the HIV virus (hence story of needle pricks in Cinema theatres is a crap). Even if blood from a wound (of infected person) dries up (blood clot), the virus dies and can not infect anyone else

• HIV transmission is ONLY an INFECTION i.e. entrance of virus in one’s body. It DOES NOT MEAN AIDS.

• An HIV-infected person (after entrance of virus) can progress to condition of AIDS only after 8 to 10 YEARS (not in 15 days as in below mentioned story)

• It is not HIV (virus) that kills a human … the virus attacks immune cells (cells that fight against foreign pathogens/antigens) and hence a person’s ability to fight against infections & diseases slowly diminishes and person ultimately dies of a disease which could be as simple as TB

• Most importantly, HIV is no longer dreadful disease … it is “CHRONIC MANAGEABLE DISEASE” just like Diabetes or Hypertension.

well this could be a very important facts, i guess it should be known by everyone for us to be aware that HIV is not that contagious diseased and that there is nothing to worry dealing with the person who is infected with this disease.
