Response from Mr. Cordova
There is zero risk of transmission from situations like this. HIV does not live well outside the body. Also, the virus can not be transmitted through casual contact. The virus needs direct access to the bloodstream for transmission to occur. There is no direct access to the bloodstream from casual contact.
