A 29-year-old female asked:

If there is no visible blood or semen, is it possible to get invisible tiny hiv particules through touching environmental surfaces such as ground then to the eye? or if there is no body liquid the tiny virus particules die immediately by air ?

No risk, no worry: Nobody has ever been known to catch HIV through a contaminated environment. You will be at risk if and when you are sexually acrive or if you use drugs by injection and share needles with other persons. Otherwise no risk and no worries. (Since no cases are acquired this way, the biological reasons don't matter. HIV dies when blood or secretions die, but there may be other reasons as well.)
