The infection is spread by contact associated with intravenous drug use and nosocomial transmission. 70 to 80 percent of persons infected by Hepatitis C are affected by chronic hepatitis, and 20 to 30 percent of these cases lead to cirrhosis with a risk of liver cancer, 10 to 20 years after the initial infection. Viral diameter approximately: 50-60nm. Viral magnification 1,800,000x at 10cm and image colorization with HDRI treatments on a Transmission Electron Micrograph view (TEM).
