True or False:

Once the blood leaves the body and is exposed in the open, the virus dies off within minutes.

Depends on a few factors like the temperature the virus is exposed to, humidity, etc. Once the blood or other fluid carrying HIV dries, there is virtually no chance of the virus spreading. HIV is also unable to replicate outside of a living host.
