Hepatitis Virus Outbreak Feared in AlRashidiya Refugee Camp

UNRWA has warned of the outburst of hepatitis (liver inflammation) in AlRashidiya Camp, south of Lebanon and called on the refugees to follow prevention tips.

Over the past couple of days, UNRWA’s Health Department spotted a number of hepatitis-stricken cases in AlRashidiya refugee camp.

UNRWA said it has been keeping tabs on such cases and taking all necessary measures to protect the refugees. Samples have been sent to hepatitis testing laboratories. The agency has also embarked on an awareness-raising campaign.

Media sources said at least 50 persons have been diagnosed with hepatitis, including two persons sheltered in AlBas refugee camp but were on a visit to AlRashdiya Camp.

Located south of the Lebanese city of Sur (Tyre), AlRashidiya Camp is home to some 260 displaced Palestinian families who fled the bloody shootouts in Syria.
