Primm said that the recent detection of a rare, drug-resistant HIV strain in New York City "should be a warning for everyone to not practice risky sex and to unquestionably be monogamous." He added, "Know your partner's status, know your own status and most of all get tested" (Tarrant-Reid, New York Daily News, 2/21). The complete article is available online.
