In brief: Hepatitis C in urine

While hepatitis c can be found in urine specimens, transmission by this route hasn't been reported.
Most occurred via blood (before testing available) sharing needles, needle sticks & rarely via sex. Hcv is less transmissible than hepatitis b but more-so than hiv. That is not to say that hcv can't be transmitted via urine or saliva & that care should be used when dealing with all body fluids.
