Scientists announced yesterday that a baby who was born with the AIDS virus has apparently been cured. The Mississippi child, who is now 2-and-a-half years old, has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.
Doctors used aggressive treatments on the child, beginning within 30 hours of birth. The strong medicine seems to have cured the toddler. If so, this is only the second reported cure of AIDS in the world. The news gives hope that the disease, which was once seen as a death sentence, can someday be defeated.
The sin that infects all of mankind leads to spiritual death. Thank God there is a cure! His name is Jesus!
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2.
