Attempting a record HIV screening
ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA- The country of Ethiopia is trying to set a world record for the number of HIV screenings in one day. It hopes to break the record in honor of World AIDS Day on December 1.
The previous record was made in Argentina in 2012 when 1,380 were tested and Ethiopia wants to screen 2,000.
UNAIDS says about 800,000 Ethiopians have been infected with HIV since it was discovered in the 1980s. The testing will be done in Ethiopia's Gambela region where almost 7 percent of the people have HIV or AIDS.
