Hello, thanks for your great service. I want to know how it is possible that when hiv hits the air, it's dead? While it is still in the wet blood? I need to know how transmission is impossible outside the body? I am always concerned about casual contacts when I have fresh or old cut.

Hi HIV is not passed casually and HIV needs to directly enter your bloodstream form a person living with HIV. HIV will not live outside of a human host and cannot be passed from wet blood on a surface.

High risk activities that may pass HIV are having unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse, and injecting with shared needles.

Low risk activities, include from mother to child, occupational exposure (needle poke and when giving oral sex to a man or woman.
