Apparently, mutated COVID-19 strains and the threat of WWIII aren’t enough for 2022, so the “powers that be” have decided to stir the pot even more by throwing in another potential disease. Is it God, a God, the universe? It’s okay, but this has to stop.
The numbers may be out of date, but since the beginning of April in Europe and the United States, 169 cases of unknown origin of hepatitis have been reported. Doctors recorded cases of this new type of hepatitis in children between 1 month and 16 years of age, and 17 children required liver transplants. According to the World Health Organization, one child has already died.
The United Kingdom is the first country to report a new type of hepatitis in children, according to the European Center for Disease Control. Here, 111 children under 10 years of age have been diagnosed with the disease.
So far, the disease has emerged in the following districts:
- Great Britain (114);
- Spain (13);
- Israel (12);
- United States (9);
- Denmark (6);
- Ireland (5);
- Netherlands (4);
- Italy (4);
- Norway (2);
- France (2);
- Romania (1);
- Belgium (1).
Citing wise doctors, the clinical syndrome in the identified patients is acute hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) with a marked increase in liver enzymes. Gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, have been reported in several cases, preceded by acute hepatitis, jaundice, and elevated liver enzymes.
Most patients did not have fever, and 74 cases were diagnosed with adenovirus, which causes acute respiratory illness. However, the common viruses that cause acute viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C, D and E) are not seen in infected children.
New unknown hepatitis may be associated with Covid-19 and has been reported in 20 cases. In addition, doctors diagnosed simultaneous coronavirus and adenovirus infections in 19 cases.
Investigations are currently underway in countries with high numbers of cases, including a detailed history of clinical illness and exposure, toxicology tests, and additional microbiological tests.
This is particularly important in the United Kingdom, where there has recently been a significant increase in the number of adenovirus infections, particularly among children. A similar problem occurred in the Netherlands, who’s next?
Let’s hope this disease is resolved soon because we don’t need another round of worms.
