Chances of blood donor having HIV?
Good afternoon doctors,
In your professional opinions, what would you say that the likelyhood of a generally healthy person, UK-born resident who does not take any forms of drugs, does not have a history of many sexual partners and is a blood donor, is to be HIV positive?
I mean, the fact that they are a blood donor, their blood would most certainly be screened for HIV right? and if discovered that they are positive they would then be notified of the infection? Therefore would you say sleeping with a person with this type of healthy background who occasionally donates blood provides minimal to zero risk of being infected with HIV, thus the risk of having sex, say, unprotected, with such a person would consequently be minimal to zero of acquiring HIV from them?
I'd like to thank you for your opinions,
