Tehran, Jan. 20 – There are currently “200,000 sufferers of the Hepatitis C virus in Iran”, according to the head of the Iranian Medical Association.

Speaking to a state-run news agency, Dr. Iraj Khosronia warned, “One of the most dangerous viruses affecting human society is Hepatitis C … but people’s awareness about this disease is very limited”.

Khosronia accused government-controlled media of deliberately avoiding the issue and said “if the media do not educate people in the necessary way then this disease will bring more harm than AIDS to our society. People have no information about the Hepatitis vaccines”.

Hepatitis C is easily transmitted via blood is drug addicts who use syringes are most in danger of being infected, Khosronia said.
