LA County backtracks on HIV cases in porn industry

Los Angeles County public health officials
are backtracking on the number of HIV cases in adult film
performers.

The county released data to the Los Angeles Times last week
disclosing at least 16 previously unpublicized cases since 2004.

The cases had been reported to the county by the Adult Industry
Medical Foundation, clinic that serves the porn industry but also
has other patients.

The Times reported Tuesday that the department now says the
occupations of those who tested positive were unclear.

Clinic co-founder Sharon Mitchell told the Times that none of
the HIV cases the county disclosed last week involved active
performers.

It was revealed last week that a female porn performer had
recently tested HIV positive.
