For a HIV to grow human temperature of 36.89 C is required. At 40 C body temperature can a HIV grow or die?

HIV replication is very complicated. It attaches to a receptor CD4 on lymphocytes uses enzymes to enter the cell then converting itself into the DNA. This process is sensitive to temperature and ideal conditions, because the enzymes the virus requires only work at normal body temperature. Essentially the worst viruses are the most fragile. It will die under less than ideal temperature and conditions.
I dont think it dies, fever is one of the first things you get from your HIV, but if it grows faster i dont know, sounds logical though
This is really amazing! Can somebody out there a scientist or a reseacher kindly answer this question. I would like to know
