We all know the ways of transmitting the HIV virus: through sex, blood, and used needles. But there are always some exceptions. Namely, a bizarre case occurred recently to one Brazilian woman who found that she is HIV-positive after using a nail clipper that had been infected with the virus.
When she saw the results she couldn’t believe that she has HIV infection. After analyzing samples from the woman and her cousin who also used the nail clipper the doctors discovered that the viral genetic materials matched and they proved that the infection was transmitted through sharing manicure tools.
This case must be use like a reminder that even common equipment shared with others can transmitted life-threatening viruses such as HIV and Hepatitis C.
