HIV in frozen blood "Please answer this. It's causing anxiety."

Feb 28, 2012

If there was frozen blood in ice or ice cream and someone ate it with a cut in their mouth, what is the HIV risk, since I read that HIV can live in frozen environments?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for the question,

HIV most certainly can not live in a frozen environment. The virus is so weak that it needs to be inside a human body to be kept at the right temperature and wetness. Even room temperature is too cold and will allow the fluid to dry!

Hope this helps!
