On Tuesday, Hawaii's department of health alerted to travelers to possible Hepatitis A exposure after it learned that a sushi restaurant worker had contracted the contagious disease. So far, 93 people have been infected during the outbreak on the island of Oahu. There has been no identified source for the infection. But officials warned Waikoloa Beach Resort visitors that a worker at the Sushi Shiono restaurant may have infected them with Hepatitis A. The disease's symptoms include muscle cramps, fatigue, fever and possible diarrhea. Symptoms usually develop one or two weeks after exposure to the disease. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-07-26-US--Hepatitis%20A-Oahu/id-3a53c23fa2904c3692dcead662e3121e http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
