This could be the wake-up call that public health officials across Greater Cincinnati have been dreading. The Northern Kentucky Health Department on Tuesday will release new data regarding cases of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. An alert notifying the media said: “Regular monitoring of HIV infection data for Northern Kentucky has shown a shift in cases that is of concern to health officials.” A spokeswoman for the health department wouldn’t say more before the Tuesday morning news conference. But figures show the number of new cases of HIV grew in Hamilton County last year, just across the river from Northern Kentucky.  Hamilton County, in fact, had more new cases of HIV reported in the first nine months of 2017 than during the entire previous year, according to data from Hamilton County Public Health.
