There is a catastrophic increase of hepatitis A cases in the EU because of migrants

Summary of Disinformation

The immunologist doctor Vladislav Zhemchugov explains the increase of hepatitis A cases in the EU countries through the uncontrolled influx of migrants. The migrants who came from disadvantaged countries with a gastrointestinal disease, brought with them viruses, and as a result, the EU system of housing and communal services in Europe did not cope with it.


No evidence given. European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control doesn't mention migration as cause for the outbreaks of Hepatitis A.
