transmission thru casual blood contact
Dec 19, 2002
Why is it a miniscule risk when someone comes in contact with infected blood. Many people have microscopic cuts on their hands. Why aren't more health workers infected? I was also wondering if their is a percentage of people that have been infected while always using a condom? Thank You for the info. You guys here really do a great service to all of us.

Because HIV is not transmitted that easily. This should be reassuring to those who are concerned about contact that does not involve sex or needle-sharing.
