Nearly 2.4 million Americans – 1 percent of the adult population – were living with hepatitis C from 2013 through 2016, according to new CDC estimates. Data highlight urgent need to diagnose and cure more Americans and address rising infections due to opioid crisis.
CDC research that analyzes data from 2004-2014 suggests the recent steep increase in cases of acute hepatitis C virus infection is associated with increases in opioid injection.
An analysis of 2003-2013 data finds that hepatitis C-related deaths are at an all-time high. More Americans die as a result of hepatitis C infection than from the vast majority of other infectious diseases reported to the CDC combined.
