What is the difference between AIDS and HIV?

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN)– Did you know that AIDS is different from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)?

AIDS is considered a pathological condition that weakens and disables the immune system, and infects the body if HIV is not treated, according to the official account of the “Salamatak Programme”, one of the Gulf Health Council’s initiatives, in a tweet on “Twitter”.

As for HIV, it infects the white blood cells responsible for defense in the body, making it vulnerable to disease.

Here is the difference between AIDS and HIV:

AIDS: Symptoms appear prominently as a result of damage to the immune system of the patient

Immunity deficiency Virus: You may not have any symptoms, and if they do, they may look like flu symptoms

  • controllability

AIDS: The disease worsens if its detection is delayed, and its symptoms are difficult to control

Immunity deficiency Virus: Symptoms of the disease can be controlled when detected and treated early

  • The effect on the patient’s lifespan

AIDS: A person may die within 3 years if his condition is not followed up with appropriate treatment

Immunity deficiency Virus: The patient can live for a long time while maintaining regular medication

The tweet also confirmed that a person can only contract AIDS if he has HIV, and it has not been treated, and a person may be infected with HIV without AIDS.
