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.
