虽然证据表明,在ED中的常规筛查期间,通常会发现未确诊的艾滋病毒病例,急性感染往往较少。据芝加哥大学的大卫·佩特拉克(David Pitrak)的说法,现在,由于患有类似Covid-19感染的症状,患者患者患者被诊断为更大数量的患者,芝加哥大学MD的诊断为更大数量。During the first 8 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, new cases of HIV infection—all diagnosed in the ED—were found at an annualized rate of 14.4 per year at Dr. Pitrak’s institution, compared with a rate of 6.8 during the previous 4 years. “An HIV test is part of the diagnostic and lab evaluation when we evaluate patients at high risk for COVID-19, or who are found to be positive for COVID-19,” said Dr. Pitrak. “It is vital to know their HIV status in the setting of such a viral illness.” The upsurge in acute HIV cases may be due to patients confusing acute HIV infection symptoms with COVID-19 symptoms and thus seeking treatment over concerns of the latter, changes in behavior precipitated by the pandemic, or disruptions in the care of people living with HIV and their partners or at-risk people using PrEP.
