Infection from contact with blood

I was recently at a party where the barman cut his hand. without noticing it he
served me a bottle of beer and i began to drink it, i had taken several sips
when i noticed that there was blood on the bottle and there was blood near the
top of the bottle, not a whole lot but it was there, how likely would it be to
catch any diseases if the blood was to have been on the part of the bottle where
i was drinking from?

    Hello gram, The chances of Hepatitis is high if you drink some drops of infected blood from the tips of the glass. You have to also understand the standing time of the blood is important and if it long time i.e. you drank after few minutes then most of the virus and bacteria will die with contact of alcohol. I would suggest you to follow up with the bar tender if he has any infections like hepatitis and if it is a no; then there is nothing to worry. Take care!
