During this time, individuals can appear and feel healthy while the virus is still active in their body. However, without proper treatment, the virus can progress and weaken the immune system, leading to the development of symptoms and complications. Therefore, it is important for individuals with HIV/AIDS to undergo regular medical check-ups and receive appropriate treatment to manage the virus and prevent its progression.
