hepatitis C transmission risk from very small cut?

hello everyone, hope you are doing well, my story goes like this, i was in the shop buying a fan, and the girl got it from another shop so when she gave it to me i opened it to check it and it has some sharp ends, so it scratched me on finger, bu t it was only like ( 2mm ) and not deep at all, i did not ask the girl if this sharp end did scratch anyone before me, is there any risk?

There is really no risk. If it were that easy to "catch" hep C we would see many many more people infected. You are worrying needlessly.
