“I Thought HIV/AIDS Was For Africans Alone”- HIV Positive British Mum
Racheal Dilly, a 48 year old mother of three tested positive to HIV in 2004 said prior to her diagnosis, she had thought HIV/AIDS only affected Africans because she didn’t know any white person who had the disease at the time.Speaking with hosts of ITV Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, yesterday, Racheal Dilly said she got infected after she dated a man she met online and had unprotected sex with him. She said she started falling ill when they ended their relationship and she was asked to go do HIV test after all other test conducted read negative.
“I just didn’t know anything about it. I just thought you got it in Africa. I didn’t know a white person had ever got it”. Dilly said to her amazed hosts yesterday.
