The Viral Time Bomb: Hepatitis C

 

Since the beginning of the year, we have heard the word virus mentioned more times than we care to remember. If you didn’t know any better, you would think the only virus is the one that currently consumes our lives. But we do know better, and there is another virus that is rapidly spreading across the globe, but it’s not a swiftly killing virus… it is hepatitis C (HCV). This virus has been described as a ‘viral time bomb’ because of its potential to erupt into a worldwide health crisis. Just what we need!
