Does hepatitis B appear in sweat?

If someone touches sweat of someone has hepatitis B on door handles, gym equipment, or even shakes hands while sweating, is there a risk of infection?

Questions such as this can be answered by this. But in general, additionally, it doesn’t really appear in sweat

In a research in Japan 2016, it has shown detected hepatitis B in sweat . Is this verified?
Thanks you.

This is virus DNA, and not necessarily infectious virus. We know that very short circulating fragments of virus DNA can be found in urine (Hepatology Communications) but these aren’t the virus itself, just bits of it. From a public health perspective, I don’t know if there has ever been a verified case of transmission through sweat and it represents a negligible risk.
