The number of people with hepatitis disease is increasing every year, which is seen from the number of hepatitis A, B, and C patients who went to hospitals.

Why is that? Certainly, because transmission continues to occur, and lack of information about its prevention in the community. Dr. dr. Rino Alvani Gani, Sp.Pd-KGEH revealed that the number of people with hepatitis B type was ranked first among several types of hepatitis.

“All hepatitis is dangerous, but hepatitis B is the most suffered by people,” he said as reported by Vemale page.

Each type has a different mode of transmission, he added.

Hepatitis A can be transmitted through infected feces. Can also through the use of cutlery together, such as glass and spoon used by the patient, then used by a healthy person.

Type of hepatitis A can be cured if the patient is treated regularly and diligently taking the medicine.

For transmission of hepatitis B is through body fluids such as mucus, saliva, and blood that infected with the virus from the disease. Can also descent from mother to child.

“Hepatitis B virus occurs due to mother and child transmission through the birth canal. Can be prevented by vaccination,” said Dr. Rino.

While hepatitis C is transmitted through infected blood, by transfusion, unsterile syringes, and intimate contact with hepatitis C sufferers. Household appliances that are used together can also be an intermediary of transmissions such as shaving razor, nail clippers, and others.
