Can HIV Survive in Air?

Answer

HIV can survive in air but not for very long. How long depends on environmental conditions. HIV contained in small droplets of bodily fluid will usually live for 30 seconds or less. HIV in larger amounts of fluid might last longer. According to the CDC HIV can not live in dried blood for more than a few hours.
