A Republican lawmaker has suggested that people living with HIV should be "quarantined" to stop it spreading.
A Georgia state lawmaker, who is married to former USA health and human services secretary Tom Price, has drawn criticism for suggesting that people with HIV be quarantined to stop the spread of the virus, recalling language used in an earlier era when AIDS was little understood.
Betty Price, a Republican physician, suggested the idea during a study committee this week, asking her colleagues whether such a move would be possible, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"I don't want to say the quarantine word, but I guess I just said it", Price said during the October 17 meeting, which was recorded on video.
In the USA 1.1 million people in the United States are now living with HIV and one in seven are unware of thier status according to the centre for disease control prevention. "So we have a public interest in curtailing the spread".
"It just seems to me it's nearly frightening the number of people who are living that are potentially carriers - well, they are carriers - but, potential to spread".

"It shows the amount of work that still needs to happen to educate elected officials on the reality of the lives of people living with HIV".
BELOW: Price's comments come around the 1:02 mark. The Georgia Department of Public Health, on behalf of Wortley, declined to comment. "However, we can not ignore the many signs that the Trump Administration does not take the on-going epidemic or the needs of people living with HIV seriously".
