According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of the 1st of this month, 20 countries had reported at least 228 cases of acute hepatitis of unknown cause, mainly in children under 10.

On the 6th, the US CDC revealed that 109 patients with similar suspected hepatitis were found, dating back to October last year, of which more than 90% were hospitalized, 14% had a liver transplant, and five died.

In addition, the median age was two years, and adenovirus that causes sore throat and diarrhea was detected in more than half of the patients.

CDC experts say that adenovirus was generally not known as the cause of hepatitis in healthy children. But since it had been detected in many patients, they were investigating the possible links. They were also planning to investigate a wide range of related matters, including the CCP virus (SARS-CoV2).

Meanwhile, the UK health authorities released a new report on the 6th. According to this report, 163 cases were reported between January and the 3rd of this month, and 11 of them had a liver transplant, but no deaths were reported. Adenovirus was also detected in 91 of the 126 tested.
