| Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Just by touching someone with HIV whether dead or alive is not a risk for HIV transmission. Once HIV is outside of the body it begins to die. With the blood being dry it has been out long enough to die and become unable to infect. The best way to clean surfaces is with bleach or alcohol. HIV transmission can only occur when there is a direct and prolonged exposure to body fluids, semen, vaginal fluid, blood or mother to child through breast feeding. This most commonly occurs through unprotected vaginal or anal sex and sharing of needles. Casual contact, sharing utensils, drinking after someone, etc are not way for HIV transmission to occur. If you go to this link HIV101 it will take you to our page that talks about the ways in which HIV is and is not transmitted.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
