Hep c transmission after svr

My mum has SVR for hep c nearly 6 months now.  Two days ago she cut her finger on a knife and washed it in the sink and put it back in the drawer.  I cut my finger with the same knife today and she did the same by washing it.  (I know, thats not sterilisation).  What are my chances of getting the virus, even if she is SVR for the virus? Thanks.

Absolutely none, zero, zip, your mum can't pass on something she doesn't have, she is SVR and no longer has the virus....

Have a great day
