Since the corona epidemic, many such diseases have been seen, which were not even heard of until now. Before Covid-19, there will probably only be a few diseases for which science has not been able to find a cure – like HIV. Everyone is aware that there is currently no effective cure for it. Earlier Kovid-19 and now monkeypox are serious diseases. Both of these diseases can be prevented, but their exact treatment has not yet been found.
In such a situation, in the midst of all this, the international agency BNO News came out with shocking and disturbing news in which a 36-year-old man in Italy tested positive for all three diseases, including monkeypox, Kovid-19 and HIV.

According to a report published in the Journal of Infection, about nine days after returning from a five-day trip to Spain, she began to have a fever, sore throat, fatigue, headache and swelling in her groin. The person tested positive for COVID-19 three days after the onset of symptoms.
In the meantime, the patient also began to develop severe rashes on the face and other parts of the body, after which they became pimples. Considering the seriousness of the condition, the patient was referred to the Emergency Center of the hospital.
According to the report, a physical examination of the man revealed spots and skin lesions on various parts of the body, including the perianal region. The liver, spleen and lymph nodes also began to enlarge. He also subsequently tested positive for monkeypox and HIV.

Furthermore, SARS-CoV-2 genome sequencing confirmed that they were infected with the Omicron (Omicron) BA.5.1 variant. According to the report, he received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The man was released from the hospital after about a week. He recovered from Covid-19 and monkeypox. However, he is still being treated for HIV.
In their case report, the researchers said: “This case highlights how the symptoms of monkeypox and COVID-19 can overlap. Also, it is stated that in the case of co-infection, one should take care of sexual habits.
The researchers also said that since this is the only reported case of simian pox virus co-infection with Covid-19 and HIV, it is difficult to say whether the two diseases could worsen the patient’s condition.
