Define HIV and AIDs. How is the disease diagnosed? 
HIV is a ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus that attacks cells that assist the body to fight infections, rendering the victims vulnerable to opportunistic diseases and infections. It is considered retrovirus because of its replicating nature that occurs in a backward manner. Similar to all viruses, the replication of HIV only takes place inside a living cell, primarily the CD4 cell. The entry of HIV into the CD4 cell occurs by binding itself to the protein receptors that are located on the outside of the cell (Harding et al., 2020). The prolonged effects of HIV in the body result in severe loss of cellular immunity, which lowers the body’s resistance to malignancy and infection, causing AIDs. In particular, HIV causes AIDs if it does not receive proper medical attention in its early stages. The diagnosis of the disease is made by conducting tests to determine the presence of HIV antibodies and/or antigens.
