Russia warns AIDS epidemic is worsening

Breaking Viral Alert

MOSCOW - Russia’s AIDS epidemic is worsening, with as many as 1.3 million people infected with HIV as the virus spreads further into the heterosexual population, Russia’s top AIDS specialist said on Tuesday.
Russia has registered 402,000 people with HIV, of whom 17,000 have died, but the real figure is much higher, said Vadim Pokrovsky, head of Russia’s federal AIDS centre.
“Not only is the number of Russians infected with HIV rising but there is an increase in the rate at which the epidemic is spreading, also a rise in the number of newly infected,” Pokrovsky told reporters.
