Hi I have a query I. I had a heamoglobin test in my college, the nurse used to

prick the finger with needle and take the blood from tip of the finger to test. The

same needle was used for the people before me in the queue after 15-20 secs it was

used for me.I dont know whether the it was bore needle or other needle, also I dont

know whether the other people had HIV what are the chances for HIV infection for

me. Thanks
