HIV was originally a virus found in apes such as chimpanzees. This version is called the simian immunodificiency virus (SIV). This virus is transmitted to humans when hunters consumed the infected meat, or wine in the infected blood. The virus eventually mutated to thrive in the humans and became human immunodificiency virus (HIV), which is being spread in the human beings today.
