Numbers of the Sick with Hepatitis A in Prague are on the decrease

In the capital city, the number of people infected with Hepatitis A has, the first time since the epidemic started at the end of the summer, started to drop. Meanwhile in the week before last about 95 people infected acceded, last week it was 74. The Prague hygienist Zdenka Jagrova comments “We haven’t won yet” but at least it is an improvement.

About 600 people got infected until now. The most newly infected were registered last week. The most affected demographic groups are adults among 20-45 years, because the epidemic started among Prague drug addicts, more specifically Russian drug addicts. The advice stays the same – wash your hands before meal, every time you touch something outside your flat.
