Viral hepatitis is on the rise. 

The hepatitis B virus (HBV), which spreads through blood and bodily fluids and invades liver cells, is thought to kill people every year around the world.

Many people who carry the virus don’t have symptoms.

Hepatitis or liver inflammation is caused by a number of viruses, but types B and C are associated with the most deaths.

Approximately 1.5 million people become newly infected each year. Almost 300 million people are chronically infected. Approximately 10% of infected individuals are diagnosed. Approximately two people die each minute from hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease, but it is spread in other ways, too. This is a hardy virus that can exist on almost any surface for up to one month. You can get infected through contact with an infected person's blood or body fluids.

CAUTION: Get yourselves tested and vaccinated. But if you find yourself already in this situation, please do not hesitate to get treatment. Don’t wait till the situation gets out of hand before you start looking for solution.
