Hepatitis C cases in the US jumped by nearly 300% between 2010 and 2015—likely fueled by the use of injected drugs like heroin, the CDC reported yesterday.
Despite the fact that more than 90% of hepatitis C cases are curable, 19,000 people still died in 2013, and the CDC researchers said that the disease is associated with more deaths in the US than 60 other infectious diseases combined.
The researchers held up efforts to boost access to clean needles as one of the best ways to fight the disease’s spread.
