Can HIV infect by drinking cup of tea with mixed infected blood?
Aug 26, 2012
One of my friend gave me a cup of tea at his home. I drunk it at the movement. People say he was a person who has infected HIV. Please let me know if that was mixed with infected blood, can it cause me the decease(HIV)? Thank you.

Hi You cannot get HIV from casual contact and this is an example of one. Drinking after someone who has HIV is not a way for HIV transmission to occur.
You are fine, be well and stay safe, Shannon
