hiv is not transmitted through environmental surfaces or inanimate objects.  once exposed to air, it becomes inactive and unable to infect.

NO RISK

thanks doctor for your response. But as you write that solid iron nail or pin is   an inanimate object and not taking part in virus spreading, in the same way hollow needle or syringe is also an inanimate object but it will spread virus. how this possible doctor. I m bit confuse in this. thanks in advance doctor for response.
