The Hepatitis A virus and the Hepatitis B virus are completely different. Hepatitis A infection is almost self limiting, almost everyone recovers and never becomes chronic, even though some may have severe symptoms during the infection period. Hepatitis A is transmitted through the fecal-oral route.
Yes, discrimination is against chronic Hepatitis B, not Hepatitis A. We must all protest against this ill-informed discrimination.
