Does harm OCD have to be physical?

So I posted a question on a Facebook group about harm OCD. I feared for 20 years HIV. I know this is contamination OCD but I think it was also harm OCD. The reason I say this is because I didn't fear for myself, I feared I'd catch it by some irrational way and the fear was then spreading it in an irrational way to those I love and it would harm them. So I say maybe this is a type of harm OCD that needs exploring. Thoughts?
