He has tested/has been tested positive for Aids.
Are both the active and passive voice correct for the verb 'test'?
Thank you in advance.
NB: AIDS -- all capitals. Although I think you test positive for the virus, HIV. AIDS develops afterwards -- or perhaps not at all. Perhaps Ray will be along to comment.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thank you very much, all teachers here. I've learned new things here every day. I should have said 'tested positive for HIV (RATHER THAN AIDS).
By the way, I thought both AIDS and Aids were good spellings because I read 'AIDS or Aids' in MACMILLAN without much thinking. In that way I could remember the spelling the easier way.
Thank you heartily (I wanted to try another way to say thank you but does this sound naturally?) again.
