A recent mysterious hepatitis outbreak among nearly 200 children around the world has caused health authorities in both Europe and the U.S. to race around desperately to find answers.
The Daily Mail reported that it has now found its way to fourteen different countries, including the United States and Canada.
Interestingly enough, 100Percent FedUp reported that this recent outbreak seems to have began very close to when Joe Biden plans to lift Title 42, which was a public health order expelling illegal immigrants before applying for asylum in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to prevent further outbreaks at the border.
The World Health Organization said it had received reports of at least 169 cases of “acute hepatitis of unknown origin” from 14 countries. The organization identified cases detected in children between the ages of one month up to 16 years, although they have yet to disclose in which countries deaths have occurred.
The about 114 cases are confirmed in the UK, with approximately 200 cases reported in total. Unfortunately, however, t is possible the true number may be greater if there are children affected who are not showing serious symptoms and therefore will not have been taken to the hospital for testing.
There have been speculations from many health officials that the Hepatitis outbreak comes as a result of lockdowns, as reduced physical contact with others weakens people’s immunity.
Hepatitis is described as an inflammation of the liver, which can lead to a range of health problems including cancer and liver failure and can be fatal. The liver is incredibly vital as it removes toxins from the blood, is involved in metabolism, and regulates blood clotting, among other functions.
Here are more details from The Daily Mail Report:
Canada’s Public Health Agency yesterday revealed it was ‘aware of reports of severe acute hepatitis of unknown origin’ in the country.
And Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced that a patient under the age of 16 was hospitalised with hepatitis on April 21.
Officials did not reveal their age, sex or location — but said they tested negative for adenovirus, believed to be the culprit of the global outbreak, and Covid.
The patient meets the working definition for a ‘probable case’ of the hepatitis cases already confirmed in countries like the UK, US and Spain officials said.
Nearly 200 children have been sickened by the condition across the world in up to 14 countries since last October. One has died and 17 have needed liver transplants.”
