|Is HIV airborne and how long it takes to detect?
Jun 25, 2001
I worked in a HIV clinic two years back as a social worker. I used to help in counsel of HIV patients and never had any direct contact. I have not worried about getting infected and am healthy. Can I get infected by talking to HIV patients?
Should I take a HIV test? HOw accurate are the results?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
HIV is not airborne. You have no reason to worry.
I am thinking of suicide too often, please help!!
Any risk from swimming in saltwater (Boston Harbor)?
