Customer Question
I recently met a new...
I recently met a new business acquaintance and shook his hand. When I shook it, I noticed his hand was wet with some sort of fluid. Assuming this fluid was an infectious one and he had HIV, am I at risk of contracting the virus if I had a bleeding cut on my hand? How about if I touched the wet hand and then my eyes or mouth, or ate before washing my hands?
