Origin of HIV

The origin of HIV is still a big mystery for the scientists. There are many theories that try to explain the first invasion of this virus into the human body. Yet, there has not been any complete consensus nor a disagreement between the several schools of thought regarding origin of HIV.

However, every one agrees to two proven theories.

There have been several theories that explain how the virus came into contact with the human body, to mark the origin of HIV.

The first few known cases of HIV

In 1976, an African-American was diagnosed with HIV, as he died in St. Louis City Hospital. It was suspected that he was a sex-worker. This patient was a 15 years old male, named Robert.R. In 1976 Arvid Noe, a Norwegian sailor, and his kid were diagnosed with AIDS. It was studied that the sailor had active sexual life when he visited Western coast of Africa. The tissues of these three people showed, that the disease got transferred to the wife from the husband, and the child inherited the virus from the mother.

Thus the origin of HIV has a contemplating history, which the scientists are still pondering over. Despite several attempts, they could not arrive at a common consensus, which would establish the truth behind the origin of HIV.
