This was a huge and inexplicable mistake which IMHO has everything to do with avoiding the absurdly expensive treatments available and in fact cure that has been all but ignored by the media since the ending of phase 3 trial which was halted by Gilead for reasons that are purely greed based and not ethical or scientific. Many folks will die because of this and many many will be infected. There are treatments, if there were none I would agree but this is easily cured and halted, just awful. shame

This would be a huge mistake! anyone living healthy but testing positive will be denied insurance coverage and be categorized as having a pre-existing condition. Unless Obamacare kicks in.
