hiv in the cell outside the body

hello experts, I know that hiv is inactive once it is outside the body, I just want to know because hiv is both in cell and serum, can cell protect hiv and prevent hiv from being damaged when exposed to air?  The hiv in the cell also is inactive upon contact with air? thank you so much!

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.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child

thank you, you are really good person that reply me so quickly, so  I just want to CONFIRM again that  hiv in the cell outside is the same fragile as hiv in serum outside  that make its outer shell damaged once exposed to air ,then be inactive? I mean the hiv in the cell, I am afraid the cell may protect the hiv. thank you again!!!
