    HIV is only powerful inside the body. Outside the body, it's just as weak as - perhaps among the weakest - any microbe out there. The most important thing here is the needle. If s/he used a sterile and brand new needle, then relax; there's nothing to worry about. Hey, don't work yourself up; life is too short.
