Other common symptoms can include headache, swollen lymph nodes, and sore throat.
These symptoms can occur within days or weeks of the initial exposure to the virus during a period called primary or acute HIV infection.
There are plenty of good reasons to utter the words “let’s just be friends” after a first date.
Perhaps there was no chemistry or a lack of shared interests, or maybe he was just a little bit of a dick.
While various sub-groups of the virus acquired human infectivity at different times, the global pandemic had its origins in the emergence of one specific strain – HIV-1 subgroup M – in Léopoldville in the Belgian Congo (now Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in the 1920s.
The pandemic HIV-1 strain (group M or Main) and a rare strain found only in a few Cameroonian people (group N) are clearly derived from SIVcpz strains endemic in Pan troglodytes troglodytes chimpanzee populations living in Cameroon.
Thus, this region is presumably where the virus was first transmitted from chimpanzees to humans.
