Need help and advice from this community experts.
Last week I helped a person who met with an accident at road side. The person was lied on the road with pool of blood and upon helping him to sit down his blood splashed on top of my left foot up to ankle(was wearing sandals and short pant). Few days later I visited him and got to know that he is a HCV patient with genotype 3a. I got panicked as I was exposed to his blood while helping him on the other day. My question is, what is the risk of contracting HCV during this incident. I had no wounds or cuts at my left foot area. Is there any risk of infection? Pls help to advise. Thanks.
