I love the way you phrased

I love the way you phrased the title here. It's the real story. So many media outlets are implying that HIV has been cured, which is absolutely ridiculous. I've had to educate DOZENS of people in day to day life in the last few weeks that this is not a 'cure'. It's awesome, but it is in no way cured.

Yea, the truth of this issue is that they MAY have discovered a way to manage it. I fucking hate how media in general can take any topic and over conflate the issue. This discovery is good, but it is not a cure.

The child known as the

The child known as the "Mississippi baby" -- an infant seemingly cured of HIV that was reported as a case study of a prolonged remission of HIV infection in The New England Journal of Medicine last fall -- now has detectable levels of HIV after more than two years of not taking antiretroviral therapy without evidence of virus, according to the pediatric HIV specialist and researchers involved in the case.
