PLEASE HELP: Google presently has incorrect medical info listed for Hep C, you can help in a few seconds!

So with Lucinda RN and HepMag.com's help we've managed to knock "sexual contact" off the top contender spot for contagious, but now it's even worse!

The main method of transmission is now listed as "Spreads easily"

Please help us correct this issue! Follow the steps below:

Step 1: select the feedback button at the bottom of the app.

Once you've selected the feed back button it's time for Step 2. 
Step 2: select the "contagious" category highlighted above.

Step 3: Once you select that category a "what's wrong with this?" will prompt.
Please enter "Spreads via contaminated blood to blood contact"
Step 4: Select/click send!

Once you've clicked send, this message will display confirming you submission! 
And Voila! within a few seconds you've just helped correct a major problem! There are two more sectors with the same issue however... there's still more incorrect info.

So please put: "About 22k new cases per year, 3.2 million Chronically infected persons in the US."

Under treatment Tab, 

The Prescription category :

"Simeprevir rarely used in US. Should be sofosbuvir/ledipasvir (Harvoni) or ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir + dasabuvir (Viekira Pak), with or without ribavirin"

And for Procedures:

Liver transplantation not common.
