I used a lancet to take hiv rapid test. And I bought the lancet from an individual seller. I’m so worried if someone drop hiv blood on it and will the lancet carry with hiv+ blood put me at risk if I use it to prick my finger?
I’ve just found an article in forum and it said “Needlestick injuries: The risk of HIV transmission from a needlestick involving HIV-containing blood is estimated to be 0.23 percent or a little over 1 in 50”
As the article said, is the lancet contained with hiv+ blood and then pricked me the same situation and risk at 0.23 percent?
sorry for my poor English, I’m so anxious after reading this article in forum. Please someone help me
