Re: Basketball Scratch Blood HIV?

Buddy this is the second thread you have started here describing a zero risk of HIV transmission. As you were advised in your pervious thread HIV is non-viable when exposed to air and is not transmitted outside of confines of human body.

You cannot contract HIV by playing basketball, nor any other sporting activity. HIV, despite the fear it generates, is extremely fragile and will only ever pose a risk with the confines of a human body (when an unprotected penis is inside a vagina or anus).

If you continue to have these irrational and almost paranoid fears of contracting HIV with everyday activities I would advise you seek professional counselling. Contracting HIV is not an issue for you, your irrational and unfounded fears are.
