Identified 240 new cases & # 39; AIDS infected since the beginning of the year & # 39; now. This was announced by Dr. Tonka Varleva, Director of the Program "Prevention and Control of HIV / AIDS" in the Ministry of Health, writes "Monitor".
Which the total number of & # 39; seropositive people since 1983, when the first case was established in Bulgaria, are little more than 2700 people, the Dr. Virleva added.
In its view, the newly discovered cases are incomparably lower than in & # 39; many European countries. The last year, 242 people were diagnosed with the AIDS virus for the same period.
Nearly 79 million people were infected with HIV 35 years ago. More than 35 million have died from AIDS-related development.
The data show that the group & # 39; age are the most vulnerable people have already started to push sex life 15 to 19 years and people who are working age from 20 to 44 years.
Our country is very much against other countries with regard to infection. It is 5.7 per 100,000 in & # 39; country, while in & # 39; other countries is 2.8 per 100,000 people, she said, and recalled that retroviral treatment is provided free of charge in Bulgaria.
In 1996, antiretroviral therapy was introduced & # 39; three components, whereby the life of the infected patients increased by & # 39; over 20 years. Factors that interfere with treatment are alcohol or high levels of & # 39; stress, for example.
BGN of & # 39; about 20,000 come from the treatment of & # 39; One infected with the AIDS virus each year. Under the condition and the dose and combination antiretroviral therapy, the amount can & # 39; range, but only marginally. F & # 39; BGN 300,000, the rate of & # 39; treatment & # 39; One infected for 15-20 years is the same as the rate of & # 39; virus survival & # 39; HIV.
Symptoms like those & # 39; the weeks after infection flu infection suggest, remind doctors. In five to eight & # 39; later, even a decade, m & # 39; is symptomatic. When the virus reaches higher levels in the body, frequent concomitant infections & # 39; other diseases begins, like fungus is the most common.
