The hepatitis B virus is a silent killer.
The incubation period is 60 to 90 days. After this period, the acute phase occurs.
During this period 90% of people infected with HBV will get rid of the virus, however 5% may die during this acute phase. The others, about 5%, will go to the chronic phase which will cause liver damage and lead to cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer.
