Hello and please don't mock me for asking this question.
I have read on this forum that being poked by a syringe is not enough that actual injecting needs to take place right?
what i wanted to know then was if there is a needle syringe lying around which has been used in the past has been used but it was pushed into your arm - syringe being pushed down would this be a risk? i have to state the needle has been there for about a year? I am asking this on behalf of my ,mate who is extremlely nervous but has difficulty reading and writing.
thanks, but i think maybe the question has been interpreted
i guess logically my friend was struck with a needle where the syringe was pushed into him,
i am assuming its like injecting, my question was that that needle we believe had been there for a 8 months or so my question was also if there was blood etc in it would the virus had died ?
