Can Hepatitis-C be transmitted through sharing a glass of water or a coke to your children? By accidently using some else's toothbrush?Will hot water from a faucet kill Hep-C?

Transmission occurs when blood or body fluids from an infected person enter the body of a person who is not infected. So, yes it is possible, but improbable. HCV is spread primarily by direct contact with infected human blood. I do not know if hot water will kill the virus. I suspect so, but get it from a better source before yo believe it.
