Welcome dr

Please see, you are fully safe in this regard

There is absolutely no risk of having contracted hiv or hep c etc during these types of incidents

And as I had mentioned to you previously I never include hep b during our discussions because you are already having robust immunity against hep b virus

But there is no risk of having contracted hiv or hep c etc too during the above mentioned incident

The most important reason is these viruses do not survive on environmental surfaces for long

In fact these viruses die very rapidly once they come out of human body

So even if there was some blood and the blood came into contact with a wound on your body but you are still safe because even if there was some virus in the blood but it must have been dead before even it came in to contact with your wound

Once again I can very confidently reassure you, there is certainly no risk of having contracted hiv or hep c etc during the above mentioned incident, viruses such as hiv or hep are very fragile and do not remain alive on environmental surfaces rather they die very soon after they come out of the human body so even if you had a wound and the wound had come in contact with some blood from another person but still you are fully safe and there is no possibility of you getting hiv or hep c etc transferred in to your body through any wounds on your body, so please not to be scared.

Best Regards!

Does this wound represent a needle wound? I do not know he got it now and I am in the taxi while going to the airport. If a wound through the needle is contaminated, it would presumably cause the transmission of a virus

No, this appears just a some kind of superficial scratch on the skin and this does not appear needle induced, so absolutely nothing to worry about hiv or hep c etc.

How to learn if the needle is not this wound

Because there is no wound here, it is just a superficial scratch only.

There is a wound but it was washed with a scratch

Even if there was a bigger wound it is so superficial and this type of superficial wound cannot make you catch hiv or hep c etc, and also these viruses do not survive on the environmental surfaces so you are fully safe.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
