blood in the flood

Jan 19, 2013

i have an open wound in my foot (but i have tape/ plaster it) there any risk to be infected hiv if i walk in the flood (if there is a blood in the flood)? because my town is flooding now.. is the tape / plester secure me from hiv blood?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There is no risk of HIV transmission happening this way. There is however possibilities of other bacterial infections occurring. I would make sure you continue to keep the wound clean and as dry as possible. But again HIV transmission is not possible in this situation.

Be well, Shannon
