Rumors?
      #134589 - 02/17/05 07:57 AM

IS there a strain of airborne HIV going around ? I heard this on a after midnight talk show and am freaking out. Whats is up with this new so called "flu" going around also here lately ? One of my friends told me his doctor called it a airborne eczema type of virus, now where did this crap come from ? Is it the funky weather we have been having or what ? It has been rainy and un seasonably warm here in so illinois lately, what is going on ?

A virus that is enveloped in a lipid membrane cannot survive in the air. Thus, we don't have to worry about airborne HIV.

Hey Jazz,

Airborne HIV would be something so differnet then you would never have to worry about having sex to catch it if it was that easy to get, huh? No airborne HIV virus is floating around over here in NY...What an epidemic that would be...then the stigma of HIV would be gone cause everyone would have it...then maybe they would find that MAGIC CURE...WOO-HOO.....have a good one my friend....~Jessie~

HIV+(not airborne) since 2-3-04
