In brief: HIV

in general HIV virus requires bloody secretions to survive and chances to get virus transmission from non-bloody saliva is very very small.
It also depends on a persons viral load, for example person with HIV but who is compliant with their medication regimen usually have very low viral load and may not be contagious at all
