“I don’t think that bleeding from wounds will cause a lot of HIV infections;”

In combat, the injured don’t just bleed; they often spray or explode in blood and other bodily fluids. This presents risk for anyone in the spray radius. You might want to read the book “American Knight,” a biography of the late Col. John Ripley, USMC (Ret), who suffered two liver transplants, quite possibly the result of constantly being rained on with the blood of wounded warriors in his proximity. And they were non-HIV injured, so you can probably extrapolate the inference.

Besides, if simple bleeding is no risk, why are boxing officials, trainers and corner men required to wear protective clothing? Or detectives at crime scenes? I could go on, but you get the point.
