    HIV, without a doubt. Most people completely recover from a COVID-19 infection (a respiratory ailment); but nobody 'recovers' from HIV. (a sexually transmitted disease). If you're ever infected with HIV, you've got HIV forever.

    Covid-19 because anybody can catch it by the air.

      No, but for people over 50 like elders or seniors it's a likely chance because they can be exposed because their immune systems are weak.

    Based on current numbers, HIV. According to the WHO, an estimated 770,000 people died of HIV in 2018, however, this was 56% fewer than the number of people estimated having died of HIV in 2004. https://www.who.int/gho/hiv/epidemic_status/deaths...

    All that said, it's a lot harder to catch HIV than it is a disease spread by air droplets...

      It's pretty easy to contract HIV, if you have sex with an HIV-infected person, or come into contact with that person's  other body fluids.

    HIV has killed more. Covid-19 is comparable with other chinese viruses such as Asian Flu and SARS.

    • HIV has only killed more because it's been around for decades. THIS Covid-19 stran is new. It's only been here for months and there are about a million collectively dead world wide.

  • Covid 19. Both can kill you, but covid 19 kills you faster then HIV can. But HIV has treatments and covid 19 doesn't have a cure / vaccine...yet.

    Covid 19 is nothing like the Spanish flu and hopefully it won't be like that.

    COVID-19 by far. It makes HIV-AIDS look like nothing. Nothing deadlier then COVID-19 has hit earth since the Spanish Flu and when the 2nd wave hits COVID-19 will surpass the Spanish Flu even and will rival Black Death.

      Get real!  NOTHING could surpass the Spanish flu. COVID-19 is already beginning to fade away in the U.S. as the outside air temperature has warmed in the late Spring. That's what a corona virus does EVERY year. A new & different strain emerges every winter, and then fades away as the weather warms.

    Covid because it will kill you faster. HIV does not directly kill you it simply destroys your immune system over time making you susceptible to disease like COVID-19

    I'd say covid 19 because more people are susceptible to it.

  • There are meds for HIV but there's nothing to protect you against covid-19

    • There literally is not approved medications against the Covid-19. Patients are either held for respiratory support which is proven to do worse than help or sent home to quarantine. Keep with the news, Edna.
