    Hong Kong hepatitis E patient visited Taiwan during incubation period (2019/05/16)

    Health officials are on alert for rat hepatitis E, following news that a Hong Kong man diagnosed with the disease had visited Taiwan this January. Rat hepatitis E is a potentially deadly strain of a liver disease that has only recently been proven capable of spreading from rodents to humans. The world's first human infection was reported in Hong Kong last summer. This week Hong Kong announced three new patients, one of whom has died from the disease.

    Crowded Hong Kong last year reported the world's first case of a human infected with rat hepatitis E. Officials now report three new cases of infection in humans, one of whom died earlier this month. Another infected patient had visited Taiwan during the disease's incubation period.

    According to print media reports, he was in Taiwan in January and went to South Korea in February. Because of this, this morning we contacted the Hong Kong Centre of Health Protection to get a better understanding of the situation. At the moment, they don't have further information to provide. We have asked them to investigate the epidemic situation as soon as possible and to provide us with any information related to Taiwan.

    At present, there is nothing to show that hepatitis E can spread from person to person. Taiwanese officials have tested 50 samples of hepatitis E infections, none of which were the rat strain.

    Type E hepatitis is a disease that enters our bodies via the fecal-oral route. Some patients will develop extreme jaundice. They present brown urine and yellow skin. The whites of their eyes can completely turn yellow.

    So far there have been five cases of humans contracting rat hepatitis E in Hong Kong. There's been another case in Canada, involving a patient who contracted the disease in Africa.
