Unfortunately, today in our country the number of infected with HIV infection increases. Since the first virus was discovered in 1987, the number of infected people in our country has increased from zero to 750,000. All these people theoretically can infect you, which is why they are registered with the dispensary and undergo regular examinations. However, for the state in the first place is the prevention of the spread of HIV among the population of our country.
We all go to shops, theaters, parks and other public places. Surely, every once in a lifetime asked the question: “Can I get anything in this place?” This is exactly what we are going to talk with today.
The immunodeficiency virus outside the body is very unstable and lives no more than a couple of minutes, but many people think that it is possible to get infected through a mosquito bite or a kiss. Let’s figure it out. Our skin is an excellent barrier to penetration into the body of many viruses, including HIV. To have an infection, it is necessary that the infection penetrated into the body, and for this you need a little more than a simple handshake. Therefore, boldly shake hands on the street (even if you have small scratches, it’s okay, the virus can not penetrate the body). Also, through a kiss, the infection can not move to your body, because in order for it to do so you need to drink at least three liters of saliva from an infected person. With then it is still more difficult, you will be able to get infected through it only if you are already pumped in as much as 200 liters. The chance of contracting HIV in a bus, tram or other public transport is zero, unless you are, of course, going to have unprotected sex there with an unverified partner.
The story of mosquitoes that will drink blood from HIV–positive, and then spread across the country – is nothing more than a myth. It is known that a mosquito who has drunk blood will not bite a second time. And in the proboscis he does not have blood, only saliva.
For beauty salons there is a whole set of rules about the presence of removable liners, sterilizers and several sets of tools. Also, all employees must strictly observe the rules of personal hygiene and keep their workplace clean. Try to choose only proven salons, ask them to tell you about how they sterilize and process tools.
In the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, article 122 states that “a deliberate decision of another person in the risk of contracting HIV” is punishable. In this case, HIV–positive can be deprived of freedom for three years. Also in this article it is indicated that any person who improperly performs the service, as a result of which another person is exposed to the risk of infection with the immunodeficiency virus, can be deprived of liberty for a term of up to five years with deprivation of the right to engage in their professional activities.
It is important to remember that HIV–positive people are not dangerous. The virus itself is dangerous, and it can only be infected by sex, at birth or through breast milk.
