Good point. What your data shows is that NANB is spreading at a slower rate
than HIV. The spread of HCV has been drastically slowed by blood
donor screening for the past few years. If your post was in reply to my
previous post, you do not address the total number of HIV-infected people
vs. those infected by HCV, which indeed are comparable in this country. Just
wanted to point that out.
