Scientists at an American laboratory discovered a new strain of HIV for the first time in 19 years, CNN reports.

The strain is part of the HIV-1 version of group M.

Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, noted that modern methods of treating HIV are effective against this strain and others, but the identification of a new strain gives a more complete map of the development of the HIV epidemic.





“There is no reason to panic or even worry a little about this,” Fauci quoted as saying.

According to the World Health Organization, around 36.7 million people living with HIV in the world.

Earlier, scientists from the Netherlands reported the third person in history, who probably managed to get rid of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

According to New Scientist, this is a group of researchers led by Dr. Annemarie Wensing of the University of Utrecht who performed a bone marrow transplant, after which the so-called DГјsseldorf patient was cured.

The subject stopped taking antiretroviral drugs, but he still has not developed viable HIV virions.
