Over 1 mln Americans HIV-positive
www.chinaview.cn 2005-06-14 10:22:10

    BEIJING, June 14 -- The CDC says more than one million Americans are infected with HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS.

    The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention says more than one million Americans are infected with HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS.

    The CDC believes that up to 1.2 million people could be living with the virus, the first time the HIV-positive population totaled more than one million since the height of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s.

    Critics say the new estimate reflects a failure of prevention, coming in the year that the government had set as its deadline to "break the back" of the AIDS epidemic.

    However, health experts also say the number shows more AIDS patients are living longer thanks to advanced medicine.
