Our expert says:
It is true that condoms minimize the transmission of HIV. It is however possible that a condom can break or might have a small tear in it that will obviously compromise the condom’s efficiency. It is absolutely just a rumor that the HI-virus is so small that it goes through the latex. The transmission that happens is a user problem not the thickness/thinness of the latex.
