Relationship between new variants of HIV and corona?
For the past several days, news is coming out about the Omicron variant of HIV and Corona. Actually, it is being speculated that the new variant of Coronavirus has come from an AIDS patient whose immunity had become very weak. Obviously, the first case of Omicron variant was found in South Africa, where about 82 lakh AIDS patients live. Not only this, it is also said that the source of the beta variant of Corona was also an HIV-infected person from South Africa.
Scientists say that the immunity of patients suffering from AIDS is very weak, due to which the body is not able to fight against common diseases. In such a situation, if the corona virus remains for a long time, then it can spread to other people in a stronger strain.
