Georgia Republican state Representative Betty Price on Tuesday inquired about quarantining people living with HIV, citing what she "guessed" are the high costs to the government for medical services and care. In addition to suggesting the possibility of quarantining people living with HIV, she also inquired about surveilling their sexual partners and tracking their contacts. And she appeared to imply that because of medical advances, people are living longer with HIV/AIDS than in decades past, and therefore are posing a greater risk because "in the past they died more readily."
