Some systems of HIV would be “within 2 to 4 weeks after a person becomes infected with HIV, they may have flu-like symptoms, such as fever, chills, or rash. "These symptoms may last for a few weeks after they become infected.”After this earliest stage of HIV, infection HIV continues to multiply but at very low levels. However “without treatment with HIV medicines, HIV infection usually advances to AIDS in 10 years or longer, though it may take less time for some people.
There's is no cure for HIV/AIDS, but there are medications that can dramatically slow the progression of the disease. These drugs have reduced many deaths in all different nations. One thing to take note of is that the disease starts off as HIV and coverts into AIDS after about 10 years. This is due to the bacteria multiplying and spreading over the body.
