An Italian man was diagnosed with HIV, monkeypox, and COVID all on the same day.
The 36-year-old managed to catch all of those viruses on a trip to Spain where he had multiple sexual relations.
Nine days after returning home, the man started to experience symptoms which included a sore throat, fatigue and a headache. The man tested positive for COVID, then later that day started developing a rash on his left arm. A few days later, he returned to the hospital.
Tests revealed he was still positive for COVID as well as the monkeypox virus and also HIV positive. But interestingly the researchers did note that COVID, monkeypox, and HIV often present similar symptoms which can make them difficult to differentiate from each other.
