London, England, Jul. 3 (UPI) -- Thousands of middle-aged people in Britain who experimented with drugs during their youth will be warned they may be infected with hepatitis C.
Up to 400,000 British people may be carrying the potentially fatal virus without knowing it, because there is such a long delay between infection and symptoms appearing, a government health campaign will warn, the Observer reported.
