How long HIV virus will be alive, out side of body?


i wonder how long could a HIVirus stay alive in the open air, fo example on a shaving razor??

Not long at all:

HIV drying outside the body virtually eliminates all infectious HIV particles therefore making the risk of HIV infection from blood or bodily fluids outside the body essentially zero.

HIV only survives for a few minutes once it is outside the body, exposed to air.
