It would be almost impossible to test negative if a person is HIV positive.
AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a diagnosis that someone who is infected with HIV receives from a medical provider when they have met certain clinical criteria. AIDS is not a living organism, just a diagnosis.HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes someone to...
this can be likely.
