More Than 900 Hepatitis A Cases Reported In Ohio Amid Multistate Outbreak

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Ohio has logged over 900 cases of hepatitis A in 2018 amid an outbreak across the state and some of the neighboring states.

Bigtime Daily reports Ohio has noticed a huge jump in cases compared with the last few years, when the state had very few cases.

People are known to be hospitalized in almost two-thirds of the cases. One death was also reported in Montgomery County.

So far in 2018, there have been about 81 cases in Pennsylvania, which is almost 80 percent increase from the last five years. Allegheny County has had at least eight cases of hepatitis A that were reported in October 2018.

Hepatitis A is an inflammation of the liver which reduces the appetite, causes stomach pain as well as jaundice. It spreads quickly if you remain in close contact with infected individuals and fecal matter.

Homeless people as well as those who use street drugs or have been incarcerated are known to be among those most likely to contract the disease.

Health officials suggest guarding against the disease with a vaccine and good hygiene.
