bloody paper tissue with cut
Last week something stupid happened to me, that makes me worry so much.
I was in the office kitchen, and I cut my bigger thumb from rigth hand with a knife when trying to cut an orange fruit.
Just a little cut of 0.5 cm. There was a little blood running out. I clean the wound with water and soup, and then I was going to bathroom, and by mistake I put this finger on a paper tissue with blood on it (around 50% of the tissue was with blood),
used by my colleague to clean his blood from running nose. The blood must been there for a few seconds, not minutes. I could see some redness/wetness on my finger.

Is this a risk?

Cheers,

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

even if the blood was in wet state, it's not a risk?
