Living In A Former Home Of Someone Affected By HIV, Will It Be Infected?
Hello … I want to ask .. I have a neighbor who died because of HIV … And now the house is empty … If I live in that house, will my family and I be infected with HIV?
Good evening, thanks for the question
The HIV virus is transmitted through the body fluids of patients who enter the body of other people directly through blood vessels, for example in drug users injecting needles alternately, through defects on the surface of the skin such as at risky sexual relations, or through the process of breastfeeding breast milk.
Some risk factors for a person vulnerable to contracting the HIV virus include:
1. Male or female sex peddlers
2. Injection drug users
3. Men who have sex with men and transgender people
4. Risk or unsafe sexual relations
5. Have or are currently suffering from sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
6. Ever get a blood transfusion
7. Making tattoos and / or medical devices / sharp instruments that are contaminated with HIV
8. Infants of mothers with HIV / AIDS
9. Serodiscordant couple - one HIV positive partner
In addition you do not need to worry too much considering the HIV virus can not last long outside the body. For this reason, the possibility of transmission occurs if you occupy a house with HIV.
So, hopefully this information can be useful
