A new DISEASE spreading across Cuba that doctors believe will eventually FIND ITS WAY to the United States. The disease is a NEW AND IMPROVED version of AIDS.
The new highly aggressive new strain of HIV develops into AIDS more than three times faster than more common strains of the virus.
Researchers at the University of Leuven in Belgium say the HIV strain CRF19 can progress to AIDS in as little as a year after exposure to virus. Typically, HIV takes approximately 10 years to develop into AIDS. Once AIDS sets in, the patient dies very QUICKLY.
The findings of their study were published in the journal EBioMedicine.
