Really weird question but worried.

Jul 31, 2013

PLease help I killed a house fly and its blood splattered in my eye is this a risk for hiv if it was a blood sucking fly. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You cannot get HIV from a fly, mosquito or any other animal. HIV is only passed from human to human.

You are HIV free from killing a fly!


shannon please answer me
Can HIV be passed through contaminated food?
