Most important of these is that it might be refractory [resistant] to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease."
    And here is a link to some very good information on the subject of not only AIDS but the Gulf War Syndrome as well:
    If the US developed such a virus in the 70's they were lacking far behind nature. HIV occurred in humans probably before 1950:

    "The HIV-1 virus that has caused the main global pandemic of AIDS started when a Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) jumped from chimpanzees to humans. This occurred in about 1930 in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo."

    There is not much doubt that the US developed ABC weapons & tested some of these on their military personnel or even civilians. But I think, that has absolutely no relevance to HIV/AIDS.

    The global spread of HIV

    In summary, 40 million people are infected with HIV worldwide, with 14.000 new cases daily. In Southern African countries, up to 40% of the people are contaminated ! Imagine 4 people out of 10 in the streets with HIV/AIDS.

    I think the low-rate of Covid-19 infections in Africa is due to a lack of data collection, and means to do so. However, given the AIDS pandemic, I think the death toll from Covid-19 will be devastating.
