My colleague is recently diagnosed with hiv virus and is not on any treatment so his viral load might be very high and the worst i got poked seconds after he poked himself in office today.
i hope his viral load doesn't change anything.
is it possible if you can explain me the scientific reason behind hiv not transmitting this way?
Is it not enough blood on pin tip?
I mean there is a blood to blood contact immediately without drying of blood through pin and that is considered a risk according to cdc ?
