CHILDREN HAVE BEEN PLAYING THE ONE WHO IS POSITIVE AND THE OTHER ONE IS NOT THEY PICKED A USED RAZOR NOT KNOWING WERE THEY GOT IT AND THEY STARTED CUTTNIG VEGETABLES AND IT SO HAPPEN THAT THEY BOTH CUT EACH OTHER ON THEIR FINGERS BY MISTAKE AND THEY BOTH BLEED WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF THE ONE WHO IS NOT POSITIVE OF GETTING INFECTED
Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for your question,
This is a little confusing because it sounds like a hypothetical situation...
Regardless, there would only be risk of transmission if the children had cut themselves significantly and therefore were bleeding a lot.
Even then, a lot of that blood needs to make it from the positive child onto and inside of the negative child's cuts. That's a lot of things that need to happen!
I'm tempted to say none of this happened, but it would have looked pretty scary to an onlooker due to the amount of blood.
Hope this helps,
