Good day, my maid was busy with a safety pin and she hooked it on her jacket im not sure if she got poked with it, but a few minutes later she touched my nail clipper, Ǐ left if for a while and then came back after about 5 minutes or more to get it, and then cut my nails, which was nail extensions with it after about a minute and washed my hands straight after that, Ǐ didn't get cut when Ǐ cut my nails, Ǐ took the extensions off in the evening,later on that evening in used the same hand to pick the clipper up , Ǐ got a cut under my nailnot with the clipper, îs there any chance that hiv could b transmitted because Ǐ touched the clipper earlier?and could it hav lived under my nail extension? And even though Ǐ washed my hands? Ǐ cut my finger, a few hours after the nail clipper incident mayb about 5 hours later, if im correct hiv dies within seconds?

Hello, the activity of cutting you nails will not lead to HIV transmission, HIV cannot live on any surface, including a safety pin or nail clippers. Sharing personal grooming devices such as toothbrushes, nail clippers and razors may pass other virus that can live on surfaces and we do not recommend sharing personal grooming devices.

HIV may be passed when people have unprotected anal intercourse, unprotected vaginal intercourse and when injecting with shared needles. We do recommend that all sexually active persons routinely test for all sexually transmitted infections including HIV.

Most people in the world are not living with HIV and you have no reason to believe you employee is living with HIV.
