The virus has also been detected in patients in Austria, Germany, Greece, Peru, the US and the UK, says El Pais. Dr Vicente Carreno, who led the Spanish team, believes his results may show that HGV acts as a co-factor worsening infections caused by other hepatitis viruses. In the Spanish study, HGV was detected in 10 of 56 patients with chronic viral hepatitis.
