Yes. Everyone who is infected with HIV is a carrier and infectious. Most people who become infected with HIV will not initially know or notice that they have been infected, but some will suffer symptoms of a short seroconversion illness when they develop HIV antibodies (generally two to six weeks after HIV exposure). Seroconversion illness can be similar to (and can be easily mistaken for) flu, glandular fever, tonsillitis or a serious herpes attack, but is rarely severe enough to require hospitalisation or even result in an immediate HIV diagnosis. The speed at which an untreated person will go on to develop AIDS varies greatly, but most people will remain asymptomatic for several years (it is estimated that around half the people with HIV develop AIDS within 10 years of becoming infected).
