South Moravia – Three dead and five hundred people left the backlog of the jaundice epidemic that hit South Moravia last year. Now experts in the dirty hands warn again. In their opinion, the vacancy rate is decreasing.

This year, regional health officials recorded twelve cases of Type A gallbladder. "This is not an epidemic, they all came from abroad, but the risk of returning the epidemic is very high," said Renata Ciupek, director of the Epidemic Unit for Sanitary Equipment.
The situation can very quickly exacerbate the low coverage of the population. "Most people do not have antibodies to improve their standard of living and hygiene before the jaundice, which is a high risk of recurrent epidemics," said Petr Husa, head of the Clinic for Infectious Diseases at the University of Brno Hospital.
In emerging Christmas markets, the risk of infection may be greater due to outdoor diets. Prevention is therefore important. "The main thing is vaccination and strict hygiene," Husa said.
Hepatitis B is also dangerous, portable in an unprotected sex. People also underestimate it. "In the last five years, infant infant mortality has fallen sharply, with almost 100% more, now less than eighty percent," Hus pointed out.
There is no vaccination against hepatitis C, which is spreading primarily among drug addicts.
