Yvonne Cruz holds an OraQuick Advance HIV test at a World AIDS Day event in Chicago, December 1, 2004. The oral test’s manufacture, Ora Sure Technologies, claims the test is 99% accurate and provides results in 20 minutes. A rise in new cases of AIDS and HIV infection among gay and bisexual men in many U.S. states, reported in a federal study on December 1, has given support for concerns the disease is resurgent in the country. The report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released in connection with World AIDS Day, said new HIV and AIDS diagnoses in 32 U.S. states rose 11 percent among gay and bisexual men between 2000 and 2003.
