I work in construction and we have been metal framing and getting cut a lot on our fingers and hands. My partner has hepatitis C and I didn't know for about a month. We have been sharing drills and tools while both of us have cuts on our hands. What are the chances I could get infected this way (cut to cut) or his blood on the drill when I grab it. If he has a fresh active bleeding cut and uses the drill or a hammer and then I immediately grab it with a cut on my hand in the same area, couldn't the infected wet blood get in my cut? Just trying to figure out what my chances of infection are. I was exposed about 6 weeks ago and I was tested (results were negative at 6 weeks).
