It varies.: In certain conditions, the virus can survive outside the body for several weeks (such as inside a syringe). Survival depends on which body fluid it is in, volume of the body fluid, concentration of the virus within it, temperature, acidity, and exposure to sunlight and humidity.

How long does HIV live outside the body? Does the fluid need to be dry or can it die before it dries?
Doesn't matter: The concern in questions like this, whether or not stated directly, is that HIV transmission might occur from contaminated environments or objects. But there are no such infections. The busiest HIV/AIDS clinics never have patients without traditional risk factors. That said, HIV is dead once blood dries, and probably survives idefinitiely if it remains wet. But it doesn't matter. ...Read more
HIV dies right away: HIV cannot live outside of the body -which is a very good thing. So if you're worried about an 'exposure' at least this is in your favor. It's always good to practice safe sex though-esp. In this modern age. I see many young people not paying attention to their own safety-and sadly a number of new cases are occurring. Most of these are in gay young men in their 20s. Be safe. Check with a doc if Qs ...Read more
Likely not long.: In order to get infected this way, the disease would likely have been in some fluid that would be injected in the body quite rapidly, and at that time contaminate the needle. The needle would not be used again but discarded. Most needles are disposable now so they should be sterile before use. If in a needle, the disease would only live likely <1-20 min. As germs don't live long on metals, etc. ...Read more
Very briefly: Hep c will survive only as long as there are living cells present. Heat, cold, time, and other adverse conditions will all destroy it. It may survive in tissues, blood, or other body fluids as long as they are kept warm or are preserved for reinfusion to others like blood transfusions. It is not generally transmitted through inanimate objects. ...Read more

Yes and yes but...: Septic shock is the body's response to severe infection. It can be caused my many different types of bacteria and infections such as pneumonia, kidney infections, or abdominal infections. While septic shock could be induced deliberately, it would not be easy to do especially in an otherwise healthy person. ...Read more
How long does neisseria gonorrhea live outside the body? From the information that is available I can find no published papers to say what the lifespan of neissria gonorrhea can survive. The information says it can't survive for long. How long? The discha
No risk, no worry: Probably only a few minutes, i.e. when the infected fluid dries. But it doesn't matter, really. Gonorrhea and other STDs are never caught from a contaminated environment.

Realize that scientists are not spending time testing how likely or unlikely pregnancy would be in such situations. ...Read more
