You’re thinking about herpes, not HIV.
No, I am specifically saying HIV. A doctor with whom I played golf and called on professionally, and whom I believe without question told me of papers which were sent to him as a member of the CDC, detailing the story of the HIV passed to male soldiers by German prostitutes. In that same paper the mosquito vector was included as something the CDC needed to alert their field investigators to in South Florida. I’m 68, nearly. But I have a very good memory for details which were connected to my profession.
