Nairobi - KEMRI has revealed that the number of people infected with Hepatitis B virus exceeds that of people living with HIV in Kenya.
However, The Standard reports that majority of Kenyans are unaware that they have the virus which has been linked to conditions such as liver failure.
While Hepatitis B virus can be transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person and from mother to child during birth, studies indicate that it can also be transmitted through consumption of infected food and water.
