The number of freshly registered cases of HIV in the Czech Republic has shot up this year, the news website iDnes.cz reported. Ninety-nine people were found to have the disease by the end of April, two-thirds more than in the same period last year and more than in the whole of 2006. In April alone 25 fresh cases were registered. Eighty-four percent of the Czech Republic’s total of 2,221 known HIV sufferers are men. Doctors say the country ranks among European states with a relatively low incidence of the disease but say they are alarmed by the recent sharp rise in the number of patients.
