could some one become infected if they drank from the same beer bottle of a recently infected person
| Response from Mr. Kull
HIV is not transmitted by casual contact, which includes sharing a drink with an HIV infected person. There is no evidence that HIV has ever been transmitted this way. It is highly unlikely that anyone would become infected by contact with saliva alone.
