The VB variant significantly weakens a person’s ability to fight infection and disease as compared to the previous variants of the virus. This means that people who are infected with this strain may develop AIDS more rapidly. The viral load in the VB variant is also 3.5 to 5.5 times higher than that of the existing strain. This means that infected people are more likely to transmit the virus to other people. However, after starting treatment, it has a similar immune system recovery and survival rate compared to people infected with other HIV strains.
