Question: I was at a bar and a drunk idiot came in my face. He was eating a sandwich and when close to my face a small part of his saliva and a droplet of bread went in my mouth which i accidentally swallowed. Do you see any health issue associated with that?

Thank you for your time.

Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but there is no need to worry as this drop of saliva and piece of bread will be subjected to gastric enzymes that are extremely acidic and will be able to eliminate any infectious agent...

I hope you find this helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards
