NON-NEWS re HIV testing

This is from an ACLU news  letter from January 2001: Emphasis mine.

           " When an infant is born to an HIV-positive mother, HIV-antibody tests on the newborn will always be positive because the baby has inherited the HIV antibodies of its mother.  This does not necessarily mean, however, that the infant is infected.  Not until the mother's antibodies disappear from the infant's system - which takes a few months at least - will HIV antibody tests on the baby show the baby's own status rather than the mother's."

What is today's news saying that is different?
I am tweeting the article separately.
