Jacob my name is Andy I’m 31 years old. I have this man in my church that has hep c. He had a bottle of water with flavoring in it and wanted me to try it. I can’t remember if I took a drink. Is there even the slightest chance I could be infected?
Hi, Andy. Based on the information, you could not be infected. Generally, hepatitis is spread through blood, less commonly, sexual contact. There is no evidence that the hepatitis C virus can be transmitted by casual contact such as hugging or shaking hands, through foods, by sharing eating utensils or drinking glasses, or by coughing or sneezing.
Well see when this happened, he didn’t know he had hep c. So he hadn’t started treatment yet. Would that make a difference
Hep C virus is commonly spread through blood, transmission through saliva is very unlikely.
