Myth or Fact
      #210960 - 10/08/06 04:31 AM

I posted in the other forum by accident, Hey in maple ridge canada i heard of a person leeding on napkins in a dispenser and then putting the napkins back in that he bled on, say i wipe my self with these napkins and theres blood on it, is there any risk at all ? and what are the chances i do get HIV if the person wiped blood on it like say 45 minutes ago ? is there any chance the virus would survive ? and ide also like to know how much blood has to go into say an open cut or sore to get HIV ?

The chances of that are slim especially since the person status in unknown. You would have more of a chance of contracting Hep B because it survives longer outside the body than does HIV
HIV can be saturated for 30 seconds with a alcohol and is destroyed

Hep B - has to be saturated for 10 minutes for that to be destroyed.
I have a question why would you use a paper towell that has blood on it? Were you bleeding that bad that you could not obtain a clean one?
And did you use it on an open wound or mucous membrane?

Stay safe
