    Gay men are the “canary in the coal mine” of future pandemics, warns doc seeking HIV cure

    “The gay community may well be the first group in which we see this, or in whom we frequently first see this.

    “Why is that? Because gay men have opportunities to travel far more frequently than their straight brothers who are raising children and staying at home and don’t have the luxury of being able to pick up any time they want to and go to a party in Spain.

    “So all of that is very much like the canary in the coal mine. What’s happening in the gay community is a warning to society: ‘We’ve got a problem here.’”

    “They tell gay men who have the disease, ‘Well go home and isolate.’ In America, a gay man can’t go home and isolate,” he says.

    “Sure, you can order in all your food, but if he doesn’t have an income, he can maybe order the food in for a week, and then he’s running out of money. We don’t have an infrastructure set up that makes ‘go home and isolate’ a practical solution.”
