AIDS Epidemic got out of Control in Russia
Representatives of Federal Center for Aids have introduced an official statistics about a number of HIV infected people in Russia. In accordance with this statistics there are more than 880 thousand HIV infected Russians at the moment. At the same time some experts say that this figure can be twice more. For example, Head of the Laboratory of Immunochemistry Institute of Virology and Molecular Biology of HIV Eduard Karamov says that the total amount of HIV infected can be up to 1.5-2 million people.

Karamov shared his opinion that such statistics is the beginning of fatal catastrophe. It proves that country is not able to control the virus and handle it. It will be absolutely impossible to stop the epidemic in the nearest future. Disease will continue spreading. The situation is hopeless. Karamov noted that more than 22 thousand people die because of this disease annually.

The Head of the Laboratory also said that Ebola fever is not threatening Russians. The spread of this disease can be stopped once and for all with special quarantines and treatment. On the other hand AIDS continues to spread all over Russian Federation killing about 2 thousand people every month. The number of infected people grows.

We have already written that a number of HIV infected in Nizhny Novgorod region has increased by 45%. The main sources of epidemic are drugs (60%) and coitus (38%). The official statistics and information is available on the website of the Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights.
