Can you not look at his back?
Yes, he MAY have passed it on, but you can't be blamed if you didn't know.

wel, have a look.
has he not had it yet? how has he seen them if they're on his back?

As it is airborne yes he could easily have passed it on already, in the few days before any spots appeared until he's had them for several days. Takes 10 days to 3 weeks to appear.
