AIDS fight: Cipollett records the largest number of Rio Negro infections


There were more infections than in 2017. Cipolletti, the city with the most sick people.

The 2018 epidemiological report on HIV in Rio Negro was given by disturbing data. The number of cases continues to rise and the ranking will be carried out by Cipolletti.

Today is the International Day against AIDS and after 35 years of its discovery, the only weapon to deal with is the condom.

According to the celebration, Cipolletti is the city with the largest number of positive cases, 26, followed by Roca (23) and Bariloche (19). As in previous years, men between the ages of 25 and 34 show most cases, and women are increasingly infected, between 35 and 45 years old and younger. The main infectious pathway is in almost all cases an unprotected sex.


There were tests in the province and the detection rate of the disease was delayed.

This year, 50,606 laboratory tests and 5756 tests were carried out. In 2018 a lower rate of positive was detected, but the studies were increased.

"People may be years of age. At times, the system begins to deteriorate and symptoms appear," said Celeste Cronic, biochemist.
