Update: Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome--Europe
JAMA. 1986 Feb 14; 255(6): 717, 719, 725.
As of 30 September 1985, 1,573 cases of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) had been reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) European Collaborating Centre on AIDS. There was an average increase of 27 cases per week, and 792 of the 1,573 patients were reported to have died. In 12 of 16 countries, homosexual males accounted for 60-100% of the total number of cases, but there was also a significant increase in the numbers of intravenous drug abusers with AIDS. Systematic screening of blood donors for antibodies to the AIDS associated virus became effective in 16 of the 21 reporting countries by November 1985, and measures to exclude donors at risk had been taken in all but three of the countries.
