Aggressive new strain of HIV discovered in Cuba

hiv-aidsAn aggressive new strain of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has been found in Cuba that can progress to AIDS so rapidly that patients may not even know they are infected before symptoms appear, scientists say.

According to a report in Medical News Today, the Cuban variant of HIV is categorized as a recombinant version of the virus, which can occur if a person engages in unprotected sex with multiple infected partners and contracts multiple strains of the HIV virus, which later recombine within a person to create a new variant.

    Two things are evident: How this new strain of HIV is created AND how to stop the spread of the virus.

    (1) This new strain of HIV is created by people having sex with multiple sex partners.

    (2) The way to stop the spread of this virus is equally evident. Let people simply STOP fornicating.

    The answer to this new strain of HIV will not be found in a vaccine or a pill for a long time. The one sure answer now is to honor and live by the moral code God has given us in the New Testament. Read Romans 1:26-31, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, and Galatians 5:19-21.

    At this time there is no evidence HIV was created by the American government. There are several possible theories as to the origin of the virus but this is the least likely. It is not a risk limited to homosexuals although gay people have been predominately responsible for the spread of the virus.

    From Chickengunya, to AIDS, to EBOLA, to Chicken Pox, to Malria. All made in the USA. Google i t and you will see. they created it. they have the cure for it. Every country it is in, got it from them. dont be fooled. they did this on purpose

      I have no confidence in the American government :twisted: but this is absolute nonsense :!:

      It seems most likely these viruses originated somewhere in Asia. There is no basis at this time for believing that HIV or any other virus was intentionally created by any human government to harm their fellow man. However human beings living in rebellion against God (in sin) draw to themselves evil spirit entities – alive with satanic life – capable of producing viruses and of changing a virus both in its appearance and personality. It has spirit life!

      The very fact that a virus changes to stay ahead of medical science and to be resistant to the latest medical treatment confirms this. Medical science is not the answer. Spiritual warfare is! But how many people understand this yet?

      lol Ignorance is so simple in thoughts

    • March 1, 2015

      I find it hard to believe you are so uneducated. But there is so many false ideas out there I guess people believe what they hope is true.

      AIDS is not exclusively a homosexual disease. Yes, straight people do get

      Straight men have been infected with HIV from wives, girlfriends, or prostitutes who became infected from bi-sexual men.

      Straight women have been infected by bi-sexual boyfriends or husbands.

      Straight men and and straight women have been infected during group sexual encounters when an infected person is in the group.

      Whatever would make you think a straight person is not at risk? The HIV virus does not ask you what your sexual orientation is. If it finds its way into your blood stream it does what the HIV virus does in the human body. Violating God’s moral code :oops: always puts an individual at risk of contacting sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS. There is a penalty to pay for pursuing these sins. :cry:

    I just read a few month back about possible cure now this. This is right from the lab

      Read the book The Thunder of Justice. There is no cure for HIV AIDs nor for Cancer.
      In the same manner some people contribute to their research, I consider it a waste of money.
      For compassionate reasons, those who are ill must be medically assisted. However, there is no cure for especially AIDS for it is a scourge. This is what is occurring in Cuba. It may already be elsewhere.
      You should know how AIDS is contracted. I visualize that the situation will become progressively worst. In especially this era, this is the price of sin and promiscuity and in an abnormal manner.

        You should be considered just another barrel to be dropped off the Niagra Falls either the Canadian or US end same difference( disposing off the ignorant.

      yes it is when USA went and pretend to be at peace with Cuba while the Cubans were distracted this was launched. God will deal with those satanists

    • March 1, 2015

      Big pharmacy will take a “condition” and give it a medically sounding name. They then market a “drug” for it. It doesn’t even matter to them if the “drug” has side effects. One example for this is what they are now calling “erectile disfunction”. Look at the “drugs” they are offering! One possible side effect is an erection lasting more than four hours!

      Naturally the pharmaceutical companies want o sell drugs to treat AIDS. This is why they are not going to tell you the truth. The way to stop the spread of AIDS is simply to stop formicating and buggering!

      The HIV virus is changing and staying ahead of medical science to become resistant to the latest medication!

      Some who are not afraid to think outside the box have suggested that this virus has drawn to itself satanic life and has an intelligence of its own.

      The world scoffs but then ”the world” has not been able to give you any answers to even counter this suggestion. The ”wise of this world” mock the old fashioned gospel but when we ask them for an alternative the silence is deafening.

      The answer is to believe the scriptures and start living the moral code God has given us in the New Testament. AIDS would disappear from off the face of the earth in a generation! Until then we need pastors who are not afraid to preach the truth to their congregations and strong deliverance ministries able to take authority over the demonic forces.

    Strange timing…… Just when Cuba is experiencing an economic boom! If a new deadly strain of HIV was discovered……because of the logistics of this disease, it would have happened in Africa or Asia first……! Some entity was paid
    To publish this nonsense with no concrete scientific data….vague rubbish. Enjoy Cuba everyone!

    weh papa! The next thing we’ll have to get is sex legislation. Meanwhile Put a temporary ban on sex! :lol:

    • March 21, 2015

      Not a ”temporary” ban on sex.

      A permanent ban on illicit sex!

      But we all know this would not work because many people would ignore the ban.

      What the government could do is begin promoting God’s moral code in the homes and schools of the nation. Romans 1:26,27, 1 Corinthians 6:9,10, Galatians 5:19-21, 1 Timothy 1:9,10, and Jude 1 vs. 7.

      Also they could invest in one page adds in newspapers encouraging abstinence before marriage and chastity after marriage.

      One thing I can guarantee. Not one person would contact HIV or any other STD because of such legislation.

      If all sexual activity could be limited to the confines of a loving committed Biblical (one man and one woman) marriage AIDS would disappear off the face of the earth in a single generation. To expect 100% success with such a policy would be unrealistic because many people would not commit themselves to it.

      However, the rate of STD would be greatly reduced.

    HIV and Ebola will continue to mutate and pose a serious threat, and difficulties for researchers who are in the hunt for a vaccine and cure. Precautionary measures are the first order of avoiding any contact.

    HIV is a laboratory made virus brought to the world via the Pentagon biowarfare unit.. It would never happen in nature on its’ own.

  16. Serious stuff
    February 19, 2015

    Then we have to test all our students and all the officials who like( sexy girls)and travel to Cuba frequently.
    You reading yes you you just returned lol we have to screen you.
    Which party have all the sexy girls? lol

  17. Just Asking
    February 19, 2015

    Yet people continue to cheat, sell their bodies for money, and engage in multiple sex encounters, cause according to their brain…one person to have sex with is never enough..I must leave a sex legacy…When will we ever learn?

    And with us having so many students studying in Cuba, this new strain will be in Dominica in lightning speed.

    • February 27, 2015

      All good people hope this new virus never reaches Dominica, but unfortunately it will probably happen.

      If people would simply stop fornicating and follow regular health rules there would never be another case. But people – even government agencies – don’t want to be told this. They would rather talk about research, vaccines, and pills.

      We need to get God’s New Testament moral code taught by parents in the homes, teachers, nurses, and counselors in the school, and pastors, youth pastors, and Sunday School teachers in the churches. If governments don’t want to pass a law against fornication perhaps they should at least invest in nation wide newspaper articles extolling the merits of abstinence before marriage and chastity after marriage. If
      they don’t want to do this from a religious perspective let them at least do it from a health perspective.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.
