Hepatitis C can cause, among other symptoms, nausea, sore muscles, joint pains and extreme fatigue.
Though hepatitis C is passed through blood, the virus can live in blood outside the body.
At room temperature, the virus can survive up to four days, making even traces of dry blood potentially infectious.
Careful though, it only means that nowadays we are finally able to take all the measures to prevent other ways of transmission! Hepatitis C is the most common blood-borne virus in the United States, with more than 3 million people infected.
Just think about it, if only intravenous drug users were concerned, that would have been an alarming number, wouldn’t it?
Instead, show you friend or loved one that you are eager to learn more about this health condition, because you truly care.
