What percentage of people get infected with hiv without being infected with other diseases? In other words, how often do you see an infection where hiv is the only player in the game?
Thanks for your kind answer
Response from Dr. Holodniy
The majority of people probably get HIV alone. However, those numbers are hard to come by. A significant minority will get HCV or sexually transmitted diseases (syphilis, etc) at the same time they get HIV infection.
