HIV/AIDS: How does AIDS happen?

World AIDS Day is celebrated on 1 December
World AIDS Day 2022 is celebrated every year on December 1, so that people can be made aware of this deadly disease. According to Healthline, the HIV virus is made up of DNA that enters cells and there is no medicine or treatment that can completely eliminate it from the body.
Infection and cancer become a disaster
Due to HIV/AIDS, there comes a time when the patient’s immunity becomes very weak. Due to this the body is not able to fight against infections and other diseases. In such a situation, the risk of dangerous infections and many cancers increases.

Sewing needles and shaving blades present in the house can cause AIDS. That’s why these things should not be shared with anyone. Because the virus can enter your body when you bleed from an infected needle or blade.
