For the peeps who got confused on this question bc of UWorld's weird question on HIV viral load:

acute HIV-1 infection: HIGH viral load, low Ab HIV-2 infection: LOW viral load, low Ab (bc standard HIV assays detect p24, which is not present on HIV-2)

Kinda annoyed I missed an easy immunology concept question :/
