Dr. Bellman! Still here! Wanted to thank you for your challenging hard work with me and countless others. The many years were ridiculously tough times. Your innovative, creative treatments; encouragement and special brand of care was true teamwork. I still use my "healing powers"! I still tell people that .. you noticed many of your chronically anemic clients seem to do better on testosterone. Thank you! No more 21 shots per week. I have not been anemic since! Best and more to you!

Considering Truvada isn’t even used by most HIV+ people anymore, it’s peculiar to hear that they’re using our apparent luck with Covid as reason to trial It. Why not trial AZT while they’re at it? It’s hard to even discuss this situation without acknowledging the commercial interference that undermines everyone’s health.

The drug Truvada could be a factor but so could other HIV drugs. I am currently taking Triumeq and am still virus-free, whether it be by luck or because of the medication i'm on. I noticed several articles on here focus on Truvada for some reason and not other Hiv meds.

Thank you for sharing this article. I find it very interesting and informative. I have been pos for 27 years and have learned to read articles with an open mind.

i think it should be mentioned that this might only apply to people on arv treatment. and also it might depend on the medication. recently i had a chat with my doctor and i mentioned that i hadnt had a flu in over 10 years. it made me think that just maybe my meds might be protecting me from flu virus..or even reducing symptoms...perhaps more testing should be done on this...

My roommate and I are both HIV+ and have also tested positive for covid 19. I experienced very mild symptoms 3 weeks ago and he experienced some fever, stomach and chest pains and loss of smell over a weeks time. I have not had any symptoms for almost 3 weeks and he has not for 2 weeks but we were retested 1 week ago and both came back still positive for covid 19.

1st, I suspect your HIV+ clients are exercising due diligence against contracting the covid-19 virus, which by itself causes your anecdotal fantasy of HIV+ clients on ART having prophylactic resistance or immunity against covid-19 to come into question. 2nd, you report there's no scientific evidence to support this fantasy of prophylactic resistance or immunity to contracting covid-19, but this does not excuse your promoting this fantasy which is being shared on social media as gospel news
