“Per the data from the government, 60 percent of HIV/AIDS patients have died from Tuberculosis,” Yuni said. Accordingly, officials decided to increase the amount of Molecular Rapid Test (TCM) to increase their ability to find new cases.

“We hope we can reduce the fatality rate of this virus by providing early medication to the patients,” Yuni added.

Meanwhile, the Head of Bali AIDS Countermeasure Commission Secretary, AA Ngurah Patria Nugraha, hopes that HIV/AIDS awareness will go back to normal post-pandemic so that the government can prevent further transmission among the people.

Cancelled surgeries in every country, elective and necessary, have killed many thousands. The late or non-diagnosis and lack of treatment of tumors, cancers, cardiac etc because ICUs have readied for Covid instead of action are diabolical. Only countries that have private healthcare where wealthy people can buy timely treatment is it safe to be sick. In Canada for example doctors no longer diagnose minor ailments like cardiac, brain tumor, hypertension . There’s no room in hospitals. The average wait time for a CT scan is years. If your aorta is plugged…. you’re screwed.

Wondering if, accidentally, these people who died were double or triple vaccinated.

@Wayan Bo, some weeks ago saying that HIV will be another pandemic was a conspiracy theory. "See me coming", said HIV.
