What is the relationship between the white blood cell count and HIV?


Answer by  rosieposey78 (1304)

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Disease). This retrovirus enters the body. The body issues a response to the white blood cells to kill the virus. Instead, HIV infects and damages these white blood cells. When HIV finally sufficiently lowers the white blood cell count, a patient will become infected with AIDS.
