Doc, I have read different explanations in regards to when a person becomes infectious after they themselves have become infected. One organization mentioned a person does not become infectious until after they seroconvert and others have said it is immediately after a person becomes infected they can infect others. What is the case?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Probably within days of exposure/infection and well before seroconversion.
