    :confused:
    found a confusing term in part 1 decks:
    " standard blood precaution".
    one of the decks said: HIV is the most infectious target of standard blood precaution"
    while another deck suggested HBV is the most infectious.
    Which one is right?????

    It is HBV. An exposed person has a 30% chance of getting infected by HBV, but only a 0.3% chance of getting HIV.
