Hepatitis C

This is unusual as hepatitis viruses go, as it very rarely causes acute infection. People will only become aware of infection when they develop serious liver disease later in life. 80% of those exposed to the virus will develop chronic infection. Spontaneous late clearance of the disease is very rare. Blood transfusion and blood products are a major means of transmission. It is also though that it can be sexually transmitted, but this is not particularly common.
