HIV: If the blood has dried long enough for the cells within the fluid to have died the HIV will also succumb to drying. But you must remember that just touching infected blood is not going to transmit the virus unless there is a break in the skin or the blood is somehow transferred into your mucous membranes or bloodstream.
