Q:How long does the HIV(IDES) virus stay alive out of the human body?
More Answers to "How long does the HIV(IDES) virus stay alive out of the human body?"Viruses are not actually "alive" in the true sense, since they cannot reproduce on their own. They must "steal" DNA from a host cell, thus destroying it. Once inside the human body, an HIV virus can remain viable indefinitely, as it destroys immunization cells and therefore has no natural enemies in the body. Outside the body, it rapidly deteriorates and becomes a harmless piece of protein.
