How to prevent Hepatitis infection when in Kerala?
The best advise we have is- "Do not drink water, cool drinks, buttermilk, icecreams or food from street vendors. Opt for bottled water, the best drink to have when outside is tendor coconut water from the local coconut vendor as it is pure, bottled by nature, fresh and rich in potasium and other electrolytes."
Hepatitis B is blood-borne infection and hence it is rare for a traveller to contract the disease. It is mainly transmitted through transfusion of infected blood or needle prick injuries.
