July 28: Today is ‪#‎worldhepatitisday‬ : remember, while HBV and HCV are life threatening infections, one cannot ignore HEV and HAV infections. In flooded conditions like now (monsoon) where hygiene and sanitation are compromised, HAV and HEV, water-borne infections, can attack. HEV is especially dangerous (can kill !) for pregnant females and precautions should be taken.
