If u ar treating a HIV patient nd u Sundenly have a needle prick, Would someone contact de Viruse?

Yes, but if ur blood is been passed into the patient blood

There are higher chances of contracting the virus (Above 95%). So if that has happened after you have used it on the patient, then make sure you seek medical attention so that you can be put on PEP drugs and that should be done within 72 hours of contracting it. But the earlier, the better. Don’t even hesitate to start the Prophylaxis regimen.

No,but you have to report immediately for prompt treatment within 48 hrs

It depends on viral load and if the needle made contact with the infected blood. The chances are very high.

as long as u dont squeeze the pricked

Pls can someone contact it from clipper at barbers shop

Sterilised clipper either with flame or UV sterilizer is safe. The virus does not survive outside a living cell…

Yes unless the person is placed on post exposure prophylasis before 72hours
