Scratch Hurt

Dear doctors:
I got scratched by a metal panel in the street, it bruised me and left a very little bleeding wound. I am worry if there were other HIV+ guy's blood on the metal, would I be infected? PS: there was frequent rain in London so I think the metal was washed by water, but does it kill viruses?

Cheers

PS: I sanitized the wound immediately using the Carex hand gel.

No chance,it's 1 million to one that there was blood on there then 10 million to 1 that it was HIV blood and then it was exposed to rain and air.Stop worrying and go back to work before your boss sack you.
