Laboratory reports of hepatitis A infection, and hepatitis C: 2013

This two-part report which can be downloaded using the link below covers both laboratory-confirmed hepatitis A virus (HAV) and hepatitis C reports in England and Wales in 2013.

Two hundred and eighty three laboratory-confirmed cases of HAV infection were reported (the greatest number being among the 25-34 year-olds). There were 11,692 confirmed laboratory reports of hepatitis C.

The HAV report, for the first time, includes molecular data for samples submitted to the PHE Virus Reference Department, including phylogenetic trees, that illustrate the travel-relatedness of a significant proportion of those cases.
