Department of Health Identifies Another Hep C Case

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Department of Health has identified a 47th case of hepatitis C in Minot. The first 45 cases came from ManorCare, but the last two are residents of Somerset Court.

The department will try to determine how the latest cases occurred and will notify people who need to be tested.

"We have to look at all of these risk factors that are involved with these individuals when we investigate them and see how they fit together and the other thing is, we really want facilities to be aware this happening in our state," says Kirby Kruger of the NDDoH

The two new cases fit within the original findings of contracting hepatitis C from podiatry and blood draw services.
