Hiv survival inside sealed or airtight bottle or bag?

I have a doubt because i know air inactivates HIV immediately when it leaves the host, but what if there is blood or any other body fluid with HIV inside a sealed or airtight bottle
Or bag? Would it survive like in a syringe? Or changes in outter temperature and pH inactivate the virus even if its inside a sealed bottle or bag? Please help
Me im ocd I need peace of mind :(

"what if" events rarely get answers in there, because we prefer to answer questions about an event that actually happened.  Hypothetical scenarios aren't helpful to anyone. If you have such an event, please describe and we can help.
Actually, this statement should answer any questions you have:

As an adult, the only risks for HIV are:
1) having unprotected, penetrative vaginal or anal sex, or
2) sharing IV drug needles with other IV drug users.

If you don't do either of those activities, you will NEVER have to worry about HIV.  Ingesting blood, coming into contact with blood, etc., is NOT a risk and you should put such events out of your mind.
