I work as a dishwasher. I have touched many dirty dishes. I may of had cuts & there may have been blood on the dishes... HIV I read lives from a fraction of a second to 2 mins. Which is true?..... The sound of 2 mins is alarming. Why does it seem HIV only stays alive in needles. How much HIV blood in a needle is even needed to infect. Thank you doctor for your answer.
