Imagines standing a room of 50 people, now imagine that you find 20 of them really attractive, now imagine that out of those 20 people that 10 of them are infected with HIV and don’t even know it!!! With this scary thought in mind here are a few reasons to really go get tested.
- There are approximately 1.2 million people in the United States who are infected with the HIV virus and out of that large number 1 in 5 people don’t even know they’re infected!!!
- Out of this number Blacks are the most severely infected race which accounted for 44% of the new HIV infection cases in 2009. This is extremely scary considering African Americans represent only 14% of the population!!!
- Simply put GET TESTED!!! It really is better to be safe than sorry, for you and your partner.
