how by blood hiv happens ? is it only by blood transfusion?
| Response from Mr. Cordova
Transmission from HIV infected blood can happen in a number of ways. Sharing needles (in a non-healthcare setting), needle sticks in health-care settings, during sexual encounters, or blood transfusions. During any of these situations, the HIV infected blood can find its way into the negative person's bloodstream, causing transmission to occur. I hope this helps.
