The HIV positive percentage has risen to 6.88 in Amritsar. Dr Pushpa Devi, head of the department of microbiology at government medical college, said this while delivering a lecture on HIV AIDS at BBK DAV College for women.

She said HIV's major symptoms included 10% reduction in body weight and simple opportunistic infections. Along with this, she talked about ART (Anti–retro Viral) treatment, which was available for the HIV positives.

"Awareness programmes on HIV are the need of the hour and also the only solution to this dreaded problem," she said.
