‼️Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by a virus. Unlike hepatitis B and C, hepatitis A does not provoke the development of the chronic liver disease - most people affected by hepatitis A recover completely and develop lifelong immunity to the disease.
However, the disease itself is unpleasant and exhausting, and recovery can take several months. Elderly people are more severely ill and may die.
💯The risk of getting hepatitis A increases during the war due to large crowds, inability to maintain hygiene, and limited access to clean drinking water.
We have collected information about viral hepatitis A and what to do to avoid getting sick.
