    Explanation
    HBV, or Hepatitis B virus, is found in all body fluids such as blood, semen, saliva, urine, and vaginal secretions if the person is infected. Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic diseases. It is transmitted through contact with the blood or other body fluids of an infected person. The presence of HBV in various body fluids makes it highly contagious and emphasizes the importance of practicing safe sex, using sterile needles, and taking precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.

    The correct answer is 85-90%. This percentage represents the proportion of people who are infected with HCV (Hepatitis C Virus). This is a high percentage, indicating that a significant portion of the population is affected by this virus. It is important to address and raise awareness about HCV to prevent further spread and ensure appropriate treatment for those infected.

This test involves taking a blood sample and examining it for specific markers of hepatitis infection, such as antibodies or viral antigens. By analyzing the levels of liver enzymes and other indicators in the blood, healthcare professionals can determine if the liver is functioning properly and if there is an active hepatitis infection present. This diagnostic method is widely used and is considered one of the most reliable ways to diagnose hepatitis.

Antiviral medications help to reduce the viral load in the body and prevent further liver damage. Regular medical check-ups are important to monitor the progress of the disease and ensure early detection of any complications. Lifestyle changes such as avoiding alcohol, maintaining a healthy diet, and practicing safe sex can also help prevent the transmission of the virus.
