    Russia needs an ACT UP


    We really don't need another strain here. I hope that people visiting the Olympics in Russia does not result in an increase in the spread of this strain around the World. All that they need is to have some of the visitors have unprotected sex with infected Russians and then bring it home.

    People who are going to visit Russia must be warned.

    I'm afraid, the homophobic people in Russia and other countries would take this as an advantage to support their arguments on how justifying their actions and decisions were in criminalizing LGBT is well-founded; instead of actually fighting the disease itself. icon_neutral.gif

    I wonder if this has been independently verified (by the WHO, for example). I would not trust any information emanating from the Russian government, particularly in relation to something that might be used to ferment even more anti-gay sentiment in that country.

    Precisely. I also wonder about the health system in the affected area.
