How long does aids last outside?
Mar 6, 2002
Hi, How long does aids last outside the body? And if a condom was used, but was left outside for 2 nights or more, and then it was reused, is there a risk of AIDS being transmitted?
Response from Mr. Kull
There is almost no risk of HIV being transmitted through contact with fluid that has been outside of the body for two days. Please see the article Survival of HIV in the Environment.
