New York City
residents think that they are at low risk for contracting
HIV, despite their high-risk activities, according to a
study by the city's health department that
was released Thursday. The report shows that 18%
of New York City adults have multiple sex partners or
inject drugs, and that of this group 92% do not think they
are at risk.
Press reports that the results of random blood sampling by
the city found that 1.4% of adults in New York are
HIV-positive, a rate nearly four times that of the
rest of the country. (The Advocate)
