(Before It's News)

goldenTwo new confirmed cases of Hepatitis A were recorded in Hawaii in the past week, bringing the total number of people sickened to 291. Onset of illness has ranged between 6/12/16 – 10/9/16.  Most of the ill are residents of Oahu.  However, eleven individuals are residents of the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, or Maui, and seven visitors have returned to the mainland or overseas.

And, another restaurant worker has been identified as a victim, raising concerns about the possibility of additional exposures. In addition to the weekly case count update, officials with Hawaii’s Department of Health reported Wednesday that a worker at McDonald’s of Kahala, at 4618 Kilauea Avenue in Honolulu, has the virus. Affected dates of service for the McDonald’s employee were Sept. 20, 21, 23, 24, 27–29, and Oct. 1, 4–5, 7, and 11. It is unlikely that any McDonald’s customers contracted the virus from the McDonald’s employee, according to state officials.
