Spit back on the charts as a mode of transmission?

This is a story that would make even the AIDS orthodoxy blush, as it recalls a period in the 80s when alleged modes of transmission were misunderstood.

A HIV carrier who spat in the faces of two police officers has been jailed.

One officer attacked by Rhonda Davis had to wait for the results of a hospital test to make sure she was clear of the virus, Plymouth Crown Court heard.

Spit has never been outlined as a mode of transmission, so why doctors would go beyond assurance and oblige a test is strange.

…The court heard Davis, with decades of substance abuse behind her…

And we have a good idea why Davis is HIV+!
