Wabah Penyakit Mahasiswa UGM

Virus of Hepatitis A

Lo tau nggak siihhh..... kalo pada minggu-minggu ini hampir 150 mahasiswa UGM terpaksa harus raway inap di sejumlah rumah sakit. Kejadian ini berawal dari sebuah virus menular yang belakangan diketahui bernama Hepatitis A.

Hepatitis A is an acute disorder. An acute disorder is one that comes on suddenly and usually does not last very long. An initial episode of hepatitis A is often followed by a relapse a few weeks later. A relapse is a reoccurrence of the disease. A few people have many relapses.

Children are more likely to contract (catch) hepatitis A than adults, but their symptoms are usually much milder than those of adults.

Among those at highest risk for hepatitis A are the following:

  • Children who go to day-care centers.
  • Troops living under crowded conditions at military camps or in the field.
  • Anyone living in heavily populated and unsanitary conditions.
  • Individuals who practice oral-anal sexual contact.
  • Tourists visiting an area where hepatitis A is common.

Menurut wawancara para pakar, dijelaskan bahwa virus ini menular lewat tempat makan/minum yang tidak steril. Padahal, di UGM banyak banget PKL-PKL yang menjajakan dagangannya dengan air cucian seadanya, en beberapa tidak mengganti air cucian tersebut. Dapat dibayangkan betapa banyaknya virus yang ada... jangan-jangan bisa bermutasi... hehehehe... Jadi, buat kalian mahasiswa Gadjah Mada tercinta, yang makin mahal ini, keep clean diri en lingkungan kamu....
