Victim in Hepatitis A Outbreak Dies

November 08, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A man hospitalized with complications from a hepatitis A outbreak that has infected more than 185 people died, hospital officials said.

The man, one of five people hospitalized in the outbreak, died less than a week after health officials announced the cases of the infectious liver disease, which were apparently linked to a Chi-Chi's restaurant at a mall near Pittsburgh.

Food-borne outbreaks of hepatitis A generally involve uncooked food handled by people with hepatitis A.
