    Even the link provided doesn’t lay it on this thick.

    from the above link:
    “The CDC did interview Dugas, and on multiple occasions, when it was becoming evident that AIDS was an infectious disease, doctors sternly advised him to stop having sex. He refused these suggestions — orders, really, as he was stubbornly unconvinced that he could transmit cancer. He remained sexually active” (http://www dot kevinmd dot com/blog/2014/12/origins-hiv-making-aids-scapegoat.html)

    He may not of been the patient 0 but he was a patient 0 for many clusters.
