To put it simply, I'm afraid that a person simply won't have the necessary amount of saliva for infection due to the low concentration of the immunodeficiency virus in human saliva. It's about a glass of saliva.

And with an open wound, it's not so bad if there is no prolonged contact with another wound.

Saliva and tears contain a small amount of infection. For example, to get infected through saliva, you need an amount the size of a bath.

You can't get infected through a kiss 😏

Saliva is not the most favorable environment for the existence of HIV, on the other hand, it is also not easy for the virus to enter the bloodstream through a simple cut (an open wound is much more dangerous in this case). Here is considered in more detail arvt.ru
