Hundreds of children in the United States have been diagnosed with mysterious and serious liver problems. Five of the children died.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said this week that about 300 children in 20 countries, including Southeast Asian countries, have been diagnosed with potentially serious hepatitis. In this context, there have been reports of infections and deaths among children in the United States.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the top US research institutes for the disease, has issued a warning about the mysterious hepatitis, which has been reported in about 24 states in the United States.
U.S. physicians are conducting experiments with the disease.
In medicine, inflammation of the liver tissue is called hepatitis. Infection with a common virus called adenovirus has increased since the Corona epidemic. Medical scientists believe that the virus may have caused a mysterious type of hepatitis.
CDC researcher Jay Butler said on Friday that it was not clear what caused the illness. Adenovirus has been detected in half of the sick children. But we are not sure if this is the cause of the illness. ‘
There are several types of adenovirus. In many cases, symptoms such as runny nose, fever, sore throat and pink eyes may occur. There are a number of other symptoms that can occur, including inflammation of the stomach and intestines.
Hepatitis viruses are known as viruses A, B, C, D and E. None of these viruses have been identified in children with this new hepatitis.
Most children infected in the United States are under the age of three. Almost all of these children have been hospitalized and eight have had liver transplants.
Last November, health officials in the state of Alabama collected samples from nine children for the first time for a severe hepatitis test. Since then the mystery has begun. The virus that usually causes hepatitis has not been detected in children. Rather, adenovirus is detected.
CDC’s J. Butler said: “None of those children have been vaccinated against the virus. So the speculation going on online about the spread of this disease due to Kavid vaccine is wrong. ‘
No symptoms of hepatitis usually appear until the virus has spread. Symptoms may include hepatitis, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, pale stools, and joint pain.
