Outrage As 12 People Get Infected With Hepatitis After Undergoing Surgery In The Hospital

Twelve patients at a German Hospital have so far been found to have hepatitis C after undergoing surgery involving an anesthetist, who is infected with the disease.

The practitioner, who no longer works at the Donau-Ries Clinic in the southern German town of Donauwoerth, infected the individuals during surgery, a local health authority said on Monday. Prosecutors have opened investigations against the anesthetist.

He was addicted to medication, according to the health body. Given that hepatitis C is normally transmitted through blood contact, it is unclear how patients became infected.

Court rejects tax evasion case against German FA ex-bosses Several hundred of the clinic’s former patients have been called to get tested for the disease. Hepatitis C is usually symptomless, or can cause flu-like symptoms.

It can become chronic, causing tiredness or upper abdominal discomfort. It can also lead to cirrhosis, which increases the risk of cancer.
