The health authority of New South Wales is investigating an outbreak of twelve cases of Hepatitis A in Sydney.

Normally, Hepatitis A is contracted overseas while eating contaminated food, with an average of only two cases locally per year.

It’s unclear what the common factor might be, since there appears to be no connection between those who have become infected.

NSW’s health director Vicky Sheppard told the ABC it’s possible others will be infected if the source isn’t found.
