I have just had blood test to check my health condition after ending COVID-19 period.
The nurse used the cotton wool stick with visible blood of another person on it ( I swear I saw the visible blood and I'm sure the blood from another person) and the cotton wool may be with alcohol to clean the injecting point before she injected. After injecting and drawing my blood, she used another clean cotton wool stick to stop the bleeding and then used band-aid to cover my injecting point. It was about 30-40 seconds (under 1 minute) between my test and the previous old woman's test
Am I at risk of HIV or hepatitis B or C when the nurse used the cotton wool stick with the blood (assumed the blood from H+ person) to clean my skin before injecting me. Do I need test or use PEP (it's still in 72 hours to use PEP) Thank you very much
