Both acute and chronic infections of the liver can be brought on by the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which also causes hepatitis B virus (HBV). About 15–45% of infected people spontaneously clear the virus without receiving any treatment within 6 months of infection with acute HCV infection, which is typically asymptomatic.

The risk of liver cirrhosis is 15–30% within 20 years for those with chronic HCV infection, which affects the remaining 55–85% of people.

Geographical distribution

There are multiple strains (or genotypes) of the HCV virus and their distribution varies by region, with Africa and Central and East Asia being the most affected continents.


The most frequent methods of transmission for the bloodborne hepatitis C virus include:

sharing injecting equipment to engage in drug injection;

due to the reuse of medical equipment, particularly syringes and needles, or insufficient sterilization in healthcare settings;

the use of blood and blood products that have not been screened;

There are other ways to spread HCV, including through sexual contact and from a mother to her unborn child, but these are much less common.

Breast milk, food, water, or casual physical contact with an infected person (such as hugging, kissing, or sharing drinks or food) do not spread hepatitis C.


Hepatitis C has a two-week to six-month incubation period, and after initial infection, about 80% of people show no symptoms. Acute symptoms include fever, fatigue, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, grey feces, joint pain, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes).
