Can AIDS get transmitted through a fork?

Q: I am a 50 years old female wishing to clear my doubts regarding AIDS transmission. If a person suffering from AIDS uses a fork and after a few minutes, a healthy person uses the same fork, what are the chances of AIDS transmission? Further, suppose the AIDS infected person has bleeding gums and a few drops of his/her blood are left on the fork used by him/her, can a healthy person get infected with AIDS if he uses the same fork? Please clear my doubts.

A:Please don't get stuck with Ifs and Buts because there is no end to such things! No, HIV/ AIDS doesn't get transmitted by any of the events you are describing. Please don't get trapped in HIV phobia and relax.
