A: thank you very much for your answer.
But I want to know a little.
The virus can't live in the air.
But I come into contact with blood.
Blood in the air will quickly lose infectious?
About how long this time?
Whether you also need to combined with how to determine the blood?
Thank you very much.

Any bodily fluid, once exposed to air, becomes ineffective almost immediately. Your finger heals almost immediately from the inside out sealing any entry. Your wound is a day old, it would have healed sufficiently. Now, combine these both facts and see. You had no risk. I have nothing more to say.
