PROVIDENCE, R.I. — For the first time, Rhode Island has one of the most complete pictures of the hepatitis C epidemic. More people are infected, and more are dying from the viral disease than previously known, finds a new study. But more people are also getting treated — and cured.
..."This study really represents an advance because it has a lot more local information," says [Rhode Island Public Health Institute Director] Amy Nunn.
