Macau: Back to the middle age when it comes to AIDS

Leocardo [pt] is disgusted at decision by a Portuguese court to back a hotel chain that sacked a HIV-infected cook. “We are back to the middle age when it comes to AIDS. We are back to the times when we thought that AIDS was transmitted by shaking hands or mosquitoes bite. (…) I myself have lived together with people who were HIV-infected, and none of them have spat or bled on me, nor have they raped or attacked me with a syringe. I must have met the wrong ones”.
