Response from Dr. Fawcett
There is no risk of living with someone who is HIV positive, nor is there any risk in sharing dishes, drinking from the same glass, or any such thing. Fumigate? HIV is transmitted by very specific sexual behaviors or blood to blood contact. Please inform yourself about the virus and understand the effect of such stigmatizing behavior on your sister.
