Scientists created a new strain of HIV called simian-tropic HIV-1. They’re going to use it to infect monkeys to test future vaccines before trying them on people. While the virus does infect and multiply almost as much as it does in people, it wont make the animal sick because the monkey’s body will suppress the virus.
I’m no animal rights activist but creating a virus just to infect monkeys is messed up. Monkeys are people too! Okay, maybe not but doesn’t it seem like we’re going in the wrong direction? It’s strange that we’re creating a new strain of the virus just to get rid of the original one. I guess I’m no scientist either.
Ok, I’m calling it. Five years, rage virus. Get your shotguns ready.
