San Diego is dealing with the largest Hepatitis A outbreak the state of California has seen in 20 years.
So far, 15 people have died and over 300 have been hospitalized with most of the people affected being homeless.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork warns that Hepatitis A is extremely contagious. He explains the disease will usually present with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and that most people are able to get better. He notes that when it strikes an at-risk population it can spread quicker.
The Doctors explain that contracting Hepatitis A is often related to hygiene and is usually passed on from contact with stool. They recommend handwashing and the use of sanitary bathroom facilities to cut down on the risk of infection.
To combat the issue, the city is now power-washing sidewalks and public areas with bleach and chlorine, along with opening more public restrooms and handwashing stations.
