The HIV virus is very fragile. It is very sensitive to temperature changes and to changes in humidity. Dry cool surfaces are lethal to it, as are hot surfaces. If you doubt the answers you're getting, to to the Center for Disease Control website and see what they have to say.
I believe it lives only a short time outside the body.
for up to 2 weeks!!
Im pretty sure DeathRattleS88 is thinking of hep. which can live for up to two weeks, aids can infect other open wound to open wound, but it dosent have a long shelf life outside the body.
HIV are highly dependent on living organism for survival.
they can only survive for at most 2 mins out in the air.
aids virus or hiv die directly when its not in a body.as on surfaces.but while in open wound its still alive
Up to 3 days under certain conditions. Granted it isn't often these conditions are met, but then again there is Hepatitis C which can last 7 or more days under ideal conditions outside the body of the host. Best idea is to avoid surfaces with dried blood on them. If you can't, then wear gloves, and treat area as if it had live contamination. Clean with bleach solution (most recommend 10% concentration of bleach, I'd suggest 20% mix as Hep C is a tough little SOB).
