Can hep c be transmitted through inhaling an infected person's sneeze?

In brief: No
Hep c is not very virulent, which means it's hard to transmit.
Blood transfusion, unprotected sex with an infected person, IV drug use, dialysis, and mother-to-fetus are the only known ways to get it. You can kiss an infected person with no risk whatsoever.
