If I opened an envelope that came in the mail. Actually my parents live behind my place so they pick up all mail. On the envelope I saw a red spot. If that was dried HIV+ blood. What are the chances of somebody getting HIV from the dried blood spot?
Thank You for your time and the work you do for the WOLRD,
Whoops !! Quickie #2 -- (Submitted May 3, 2010) Dr. Bob,
I asked the question about the dried blood on an envelope. I guess the extension would be -- No matter what it touched? Is there any exceptions??
Thanks, one last time,
Response from Dr. Frascino
The HIV-acquisition risk from dried blood on an envelope is completely nonexistent, "no matter what it touched!"
Be well and please extend my thanks to your company!
