Quotopic_232.png

Three friends meets in front of ComiD's house. 

ComiD
Have you heard?

AliD
That what?

ComiD
Can't you even guess?

AliD
Your trap caught a rat.

ComiD
Not only a rat,  it is a rodent. 

AliD 
Tell me please.

ComiD 
You can get HIV through kissing.

AliD
Stop it if you are joking.

ComiD
Joke ke! it is no a joking matter.

AliD
Then what is it?  Don't you know that, that is my area of  specialization.

ComiD 
I don't know, all I know is that you can get HIV through kissing.

AliD.
I can't.

ComiD
You can, you better stop it. 

SeriD
It is true Mr. Kiss specialist. If you and the person  you are kissing have open wound in the mouth, and either of you is infected. You can get infected. It's rare though.

AliD
You have ruined me. Anyway I will do it for the last time and stop it.

SeriD
Kissing is not wrong. You can only have HIV through it, if you and your partner have deep wound in the mouth and  one of you have HIV. Blood fluid can through open wound get into the another mouth.

AliD 
I have an opening in my mouth. Does that meany I have HIV?

ComiD
Yes you have. Hahahahaha.

SeriD
No you do not have HIV. 

ComiD
You have infected others with HIV.

AliD
Oh no I do not have HIV, I only have a small opening in my mouth.

ComiD
Treat it.

SeriD
Yes, treat it, having open wound in your mouth is not healthy aside HIV.

AliD 
Why do you people even focus on what I like. Is that the only way to get HIV?

ComiD
Yes, that is the fastest way.

SeriD
No, it happens on very rear cases. There are other ways you can get HIV infection. HIV dwells in the body fluid, sperm, virginal, anal fluid and blood. When your blood come in contact through sexual intercourse,  sharing sharp object like needle, razor, taking infected blood. you will get Infected. Infected mother can give her child during pregnancy, child birth, or breast feeding. 

AliD
Oh! Poor child?  Is there HIV in saliva?

ComiD
Is saliva not body fluid? Even sweat, when the sweat of an infected person touch you, you are gone.

SeriD
That is a iro funfun balau, originated from your village. You can't have HIV through another's saliva, sweat, sharing food, shaking hands, hugging, even using same toilet.

AliD
N tooh! Saying what you don't know. Do you even know whether that your girl has HIV?

ComiD
The gods forbid. She is radiant as the sun. Please don't even go there, don't let me faint o, hmm.

SeriD
HIV is not a facial disease. The only way to know your statues is to get tested.

ComiD
Are you saying she has HIV? I will ask her to go for test tomorrow or what are you saying, oh my God.

AliD
Now, you are afraid of your iniquities. Get yourself tested😂

SeriD
No need to think too far. Getting tested is the sure way to know your statues. HIV passes through 3 stages. 
      The first stage is called the acute stage. This is 2-4weeks after infection. The infected person has flu-like illness like fever, chills, rash, night sweat, muscle-ache, sore-throat and more. Some other may not feel this flu-like illness.' In this stage people have large amount of virus in their body and they are contagious.

AliD
Can you see. You once told me she has fever. May be...

ComiD
May be what? You looking for my trouble.

SeriD
That she has fever doesn't mean she has HIV. Fever is a sickness on it own, it can also be a symptom of a sickness or disease. The second stage is the chronical latency(HIV dormancy) called the chronical HIV infection. In the stage, HIV is still in the body but it reproduces at the low level. One may not feel any symptoms or sickness  at this stage. If someone is already in medication in the is this stage, using ART drug, it can prolong it from getting to AIDS stage. Those who does not have treatment have the virus have dominance in their body , moving to the last stage.
    The last stage is the Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome(AIDS) stage. This is the most severe stage of the infections. 'People in the stage have their immune system  so destroyed and get several illness called opportunist illness, fever, swollen lymph...' It takes 10-15years  for immunity system to be totally damaged. That is why you need to know your statues today.

ComiD
Prof the prof. Eh! Hope is lost, if one gets infected, it is death.

SeriD
Not at all, except not treated. Though there is no cure yet but one can live with it using medication that fight HIV infection and lower the risk of infecting others. That is why you have to know your statues, when you know your statues and you are positive...

AliD and ComiD
The gods, Ogun, oya, sango, osun, orunmila, obatala forbid

SeriD
Ase, get to tell your local doctor for counselling and immediate medication. It is not the end of your life. The earlier the better, taking medication early enough saves you.

AliD 
Hmm!

SeriD
You can have HIV and live long, healthy, have happy family and even raise kids without HIV. But the earlier you discover, the earlier you get treated the better. Get tested, know your statues.

ComiD
For heavens sake, what is even this HIV?

AliD
It is a demon, an evil spirit, the servant of witches. It is a killer

SeriD
It is not a demon, it is a virus. It is not witch affliction, it is gotten when you have contact with one infected with it. It is a killer disease, that is when it is not treated. 
   HIV is a virus that harms the immune system by destroying  the CD4,T4  cell (this is a type of white blood cell) that helps the body fight infection. when this cell is destroyed, it expose the body to infection or cancer.

AliD
It exposes the body to danger

ComiD
Exactly!

SeriD
One fact is the body cannot get rid of HIV no matter the treatment, one will live with it forever.

ComiD
I will go for a test. My girl friend will have a test too, ones I am cleared, I will clear my account, no more gf, I don't even know.

AliD
So also I

SeriD
😁. Abstinence is the key. Abstinence from sex until you marry. If you must, have a faithful partner and use condom consistently and correctly. Avoid sharing sharp object with people. Take tested and certify blood. Infected mothers should seek medical advice in other not infect her baby.

ComiD
Shai! You really know about this things o.

AliD 
May be we should gather more friend and have then lecture. You know how the street roll.
SeriD 
It is my pleasure.

ComiD
It should be. I go do a test.

AliD
I too

SeriD
May be I latter
