Hepatitis alert: Rats are infecting humans with deadly virus – 11 confirmed cases in Asia

The most common hepatitis E symptoms include pale stools, a yellowing of the skin, and darkening of the urine.

Patients have also reported tiredness, a fever, committing, abdominal pain, and a loss of appetite.

The UK government has urged anybody who thinks they may have hepatitis E to speak to a doctor.

You could lower your risk of infection by cooking meat thoroughly, washing your hands before preparing and eating food, and by boiling all drinking water when you’re travelling.
