Feb 14, 2013

I was reading your Dr's answer saying that it is possible to contract hiv through a dollar bill not true there have been no reported cases internationally of anyone ever contracting the virus from snorting through a dollar bill.Hiv cannot live in the air it needs a human host.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

In health,


Fever after two weeks of exposure.
