Blood in Glass
May 7, 2004

I had explained the folowing to the CDC.......

HIV positive man shaving. While shaving he slightly cuts himself, with a small amount(1 drop at most) of blood that falls into a empty cup. 30 MINUTES later, I pick up the cup, put water in it and drink cup of water.(I could not see the blood as cup is orange nor did I look to see if there was blood as I did not know my friend shaved etc)

The CDC says NO RISK due to how fragile HIV is. Does The Body agree with this?

Please reply as I am quite nervous.

Response from Dr. Lee
