The warning of a possibly aggressive new strain of HIV in New York has the Michigan health community's attention.
The possible strain is resistant to many drugs and develops into AIDS more quickly.
But health officials in Michigan said there's no reason for people to be alarmed.
They said, instead, this should serve as a wake-up call to what's become a complacent society about the AIDS epidemic.
If you think you've been infected with HIV, contact your doctor or local health department. Testing can be anonymous with quick results.
