A local official says an employee tested positive for hepatitis A and went to work at Starbucks, leaving thousands of Starbucks customers in New Jersey infected with hepatitis A.
Hepatitis spreads easily between individuals through foods, drinks and tools contaminated with the disease, and when exposed to infection with the disease, some symptoms appear from two to six weeks, including:
Fever, nausea and vomiting can last up to two months.
Accordingly, many people, who may reach hundreds, have been vaccinated against hepatitis A in New Jersey
To avoid getting sick.
After it was proven that the employee was positive, there is a strong possibility that thousands of people will be injured as well.
Health officials urged to receive the vaccination as soon as possible but no later than 14 days after contact, after the Starbucks location closed.
Vaccine clinics have also been set up by public health staff near Starbucks on Friday and Saturday so far, and they have vaccinated nearly 800 individuals so far. This is the largest vaccine effort that has occurred in New Jersey.
It is said that the employee who tested positive for hepatitis A has begun to recover, as CNN stated, and that no other cases have been confirmed so far.
