Various studies have shown that HIV is not spread by touch, tears, sweat, or salivary exchange. You will not be infected with HIV while in a room and breathe the same air as people living with HIV / AIDS. Touching goods that have been touched by PLWHA. Drink from a glass that has been used by PLWHA. Hug, kiss, or shake hands with PLWHA. Share cutlery with PLWHA. Using gym equipment together with PLWHA. HIV can only be transmitted through the exchange of certain body fluids containing high concentrations of HIV antibodies, such as blood, spinal cord, semen, vaginal fluids and anus, and breast milk. HIV is transmitted when one of these fluids (from an HIV positive person) enters through the mucous membranes, open wounds, or scratches of an HIV uninfected person. The British HIV / AIDS organization, AVERT, says that closed-mouth kisses are not a big threat. However, open-mouth kisses can be a risk factor if blood is involved, such as a bite wound, bleeding gums, or mouth ulcers. If you have HIV, you should immediately consult an accredited physician at the clinic. Our clinic, HIV Clinic Singapore uses the latest antiretroviral (ARV) medications according to the latest guidelines.
Furthermore, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) rate, other body fluids, including saliva, have very few residues of HIV antibodies so the risk of infection is very low. HIV is transmitted through blood, but there is no medical evidence to date that can show that mosquito bites are a medium for the spread of the HIV virus, even in places that are vulnerable to HIV and many mosquitoes. When the mosquitoes move the location of the bite, they will not inject the blood of the previous person to the next ‘prey’. In addition, the age of HIV virus in insects will not last long. In the early years of the epidemic, the death toll from HIV / AIDS soared. But since the development of modern science, retroviral drugs have enabled people living with HIV to have longer, normal, and productive survival. Although it is medically proven to significantly reduce the rate of death from HIV / AIDS, retroviral drugs should be taken routinely for life. If many doses are passed, the virus may develop a drug resistance that can lead to severe side effects later in life. There is no antidote for HIV / AIDS.
