Biratnagar, April 30: More than 100 people have been affected by Hepatitis E (jaundice) in Morang district in the last one week, the District Public Health Office, Morang said.

Doctors fear a jaundice epidemic if precaution and protection is not adopted against this viral disease.

Although it is estimated that the disease has claimed the lives of four people and infected around 300 in the district, pathology tests carried out on suspected jaundice cases at government and private hospitals here by the DPHO confirmed Hepatitis E in 100 patients.

The DPHO has warned the people against drinking contaminated water, stale and spoilt food.
