First of all there is no virus of AIDS instead there is HIV virus .HIV causes AIDS. As with any virus, HIV cannot grow and multiply by itself and requires a host to reproduce. The human body is the host for HIV. Once the virus is in the body, it reproduces, and eventually makes the immune system not work properly.
AIDS is a serious condition resulting from HIV in the body. The body’s defense (immune) system cannot fight or break down illnesses. Without AIDS, the body can fight illness much easier. A person with AIDS can get many different kinds of diseases because their immune system is weakened. By sharing oranges and mangos you can not get the HIV virus .HIV can be transmitted from an infected person to another through the following:
- Breast milk,
- Direct blood contact like a blood transfusion and use of drug needles,
- Mother-to-baby contact (before or during birth, or through breast milk).
- HIV cannot be spread through normal contact such as coughing, sneezing, hugging, or kissing.
