I'm sorry for occupying your time, when I was riding a bicycle last week, someone maliciously placed the needle of the syringe on the seat. Unfortunately, I was stabbed and I was worried about the risk of HIV
1. If a hollow injection needle that is NOT CONNECTED TO THE SYRINGE is pierced into the body and there is HIV blood in the injection needle, will this cause infection?
2. I know that infectious body fluids will be inactivated immediately in the air (as anxiousnomore said). Will the hollow needle with residual HIV blood be exposed to the air, will the virus be inactivated?
3. In common cases of shared syringe infection, is it necessary to have a SYRINGE CONNECTED TO THE HOLLOW NEEDLE and then push the syringe to inject infectious liquid into the body to be infected? If you just pierce the body with a needle that is NOT CONNECTED TO THE SYRINGE, you won’t get infected, right?
Thank you for solving my doubts, I really appreciate it!
