Kolkata: Delayed diagnosis of Hepatitis has been allowing the killer disease to take more lives, experts said on the World Hepatitis Day on Sunday."Hepatitis B (HBV) and Hepatitis C (HCV) infections are `silent` diseases that remain asymptomatic for decades. Due to lower awareness, more than 80 per cent HCV patients and over 60 per cent patients with HBV are diagnosed at a stage when the disease is irreversible," Dr Anil Arora, head of the department of gastroenterology and hepatology at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi, said in a statement.
