Hepatitis A epidemic quickly spreading in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

Mykolayiv authorities announced that a mass Hepatitis A infection occurred in the city and the epidemic is quickly spreading.

Disproof

According to Ukraine’s Health Ministry Community Health Center, Mykolayiv and the surrounding region have logged 47 Hepatitis A cases this year, including six children. National rates of hepatitis A have remained constant over recent years and there are no grounds to call the current outbreak an epidemic.
