New HIV infections in Minnesota dipped slightly last year, but
infection rates among several subgroups — young people,
minorities and intravenous drug users — rose significantly.

The state recorded 294 new HIV and AIDS cases last year, down
from 306 in 2014, according to an annual HIV surveillance report
issued Wednesday by the Minnesota Department of Health. But
health officials said they are alarmed by an increase in certain
populations and groups.

New HIV cases among Minnesotans aged 20 to 29 increased by 24
percent in 2015, the department said. The majority of cases
occurred in the Twin Cities area, and included sharply higher
rates within communities of color and men who have sex with men.

Obama triumphs again. More blacks with AIDS and dependent on
drugs.

I don't know about that. What I would blame is a drug called
Truvada, a combination of several antiviral drugs that is used
to prevent HIV infection.

According to the pharmaceutical companies, Truvada is about 80%
effective when taken regularly. Which is heard as 100% effective
by tweaked-out twinks who take it irregularly as a morning-after
pill. Since it is believed to be 100% effective, condoms are no
longer used, which explains the sudden increase in HIV infections
around the country. And these new infections are resistant to
the antiviral drugs in Truvada.

Truvada costs several thousand dollars per month, is fully paid
for by the government, and is only making the problem worse.
You can actually thank Ronald Reagan for it, since he was the
president who signed the Ryan White Act that pays for such drugs.
