A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report shows cases of hepatitis C and hepatitis A continue to rise in the United States.
But the level of hepatitis B infections remains relatively stable.
The report is based on viral hepatitis surveillance data from 2019. The data suggest the rate of hepatitis C infections increased 63% from the rate reported during 2015.
Type C is the most deadly and there's no vaccine for it.
Over the last decade, the most rapid increase in the incidence of hepatitis C cases has been among young adults who have injected drugs.
