One six-year-old girl in California had put a used needle in her mouth after she thought it was a thermometer; she tested negative for hepatitis B and C. The girl was unharmed.

Some experts say the only solution is to help more users get treatment and to direct more funding to treatment programs, while others are fighting for needle exchange programs or the creation of safe spaces to shoot up.
