All sorts of ‘people’ can ask questions on JustAnswer. In honor of Halloween, we wanted to present to you one of the more unusual questions we have received. Read on to learn more about HVV.

A little while ago, someone came to our site asking where they could buy a bag of blood due to the fact they had HVV (Human Vampiric Virus). The nurse who helped this customer had to break the news that in the US blood cannot be bought or given out for free. A doctor would need to refer their patient to a specialist for help. The customer had just moved to a new city and hadn’t had a chance to find a doctor who specialized in HVV and was very distraught after learning purchasing blood was not going to be an option. The nurse continued to help by instructing the customer to contact the closest hospital to their new location. Due to the rarity of the virus, the customer worried they would be locked in a cage so the hospital could run experiments. The nurse convinced the customer that contacting the hospital would only result in additional assistance for their issue.

Additionally, the nurse provided website listing iron rich foods which would help the iron deficiency the customer was most likely experiencing due to lack of blood intake.

Just remember, regardless of the issue at hand, we have experts who can help.

Happy Halloween!
