Getting AIDS can cause a huge amount of emotional turmoil to the people afflicted with it. Earlier, getting AIDS was a certain death sentence, but now, with a number of medicines available, it is possible to live a healthy life for long periods of time. However, at the same time, there are a lot of laws in place that criminalize the wilful passing on of AIDS to other people, so passing on of the virus from one to another is a crime if done without the knowledge of the other person.
But, if a person has been given the virus by somebody else, it can cause a huge amount of anger and lead to a desire for revenge, which seems to have been the case here, where a lady was given the AIDS virus by her husband, and in her quest for revenge, she spread it to a number of other people (link to article):
A doctor treating HIV-positive patients has claimed that one of his patients has indulged in sexual relations with more than 100 partners "to take revenge" for her condition. While counselling her, the doctor learnt that she not only has multiple partners, but hunts for them with a vengeance to spread the virus she contracted through her husband.
"She was brought to us by her sister, who herself is HIV positive," said Gilada. "We found out that she had learnt of her husband's HIV-positive status in 2005, and that he had transmitted the disease to her as well. Although she divorced him, she couldn't come to terms with the fact that he had knowingly passed on the virus to her," he said.
Gilada said that during the counselling sessions, the woman, who works as a maid, claimed she has had more than 300 sexual encounters with 100 men over the past three years. "She admitted to frequent encounters with men ranging from her employers and their relatives, to the liftman and students - all of whom have had unprotected sex with her," said Gilada.
