An American research team has reported that it has possibly cured HIV in a woman using a stem cell transplant.
She appears to be the third person ever cured of HIV. Bone marrow transplants cured two patient previously. The scientists used a cutting edge stem cell transplant method that they expect will expand the pool of people who could receive a similar treatment.

As South Africa former preeminent advisor on COVID-19 we’ll also ask him about a dreaded fifth wave.
