According to the Florida Department of Healthy, the number of hepatitis A cases are rising in Volusia County.
Hepatitis A is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis A virus. The virus is highly contagious, the Hepatitis A and is usually transmitted by the fecal-oral route, either through person-to-person contact or consumption of contaminated food or water. Contamination can occur when infected persons do not wash their hands properly after going to the bathroom and then touch other objects or food items. This is why surfaces that are frequently touched should be cleaned and sanitized often
Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, diarrhea, clay-colored stools, joint pain and jaundice, which is yellowing of the skin and eyes. They usually begin four weeks after exposure and develop over several days. Hepatitis A can be spread through food or drink that has been contaminated with fecal matter from those infected.
