Because of varying reporting practices, AIDS case data are not available for all countries for the same time period.
Such patients accounted for 12% of cases reported for Europe in June 1985, 6% in June 1986, and 4% in December 1987.
As of April 1988, Zimbabwe officially retracted its report of 380 cases pending a national review of the accuracy of its reporting system.
