Please tell me how long HIV in a few drops of blood will take to die? Let's take it that the blood is not dry.

Response from Ms. Breuer

If you review other responses at this website, you will find multiple answers to this question. If you are asking about a possible exposure you may be concerned about, we would need much more detail. Wet blood is considered by OSHA to be a hazardous material, and should be treated that way. Beyond that, no one will give you a precise answer to this question because there are too many variables.

sorry another toilet question
