NEW YORK CITY’S GRIM FIGURES

SHARE NEW YORK CITY’S GRIM FIGURES

New York City has the highest AIDS rate in the world, with nearly one of every four men between the ages 25 and 44 infected with the disease, a report said Wednesday. The results were compiled in a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the New York Post reported. The two-year study was based on blood samples from patients with non-AIDS-related conditions at 26 hospitals across the nation, including three in New York City. Although the results painted a grim picture for New York City, Timothy Donderto, a CDC epidemic specialist, said the survey also shows "a steady increase nationwide for all demographic groups tested."
