A thread for discussing various infectious diseases, and news associated with them. So Ebola, HIV, SARS, etc.

 

Starting with a couple articles about HIV that came across my FB feed.  90 % of all HIV cases trace back to a strain that comes from Kinshasha/Leopoldville back in the 1920s where it spread out due to rail and other transportation networks.
