For MOST viral infections, there is no cure
, and with HIV
, a retrovrius, it is unlikely.
We still don't have a cure
for the common cold, and influenza. A cure would be wonderful, but just think of all the other diseases out there with no cure, only treatments.
The thing to be thankful for is how far we've come in the treatment for HIV/AIDS. MANY people are living completely normal life spans...it's not the automatic death sentence it was at the beginning.
