Hepatitis: Number of children with condition rises – Covid vaccine ruled out as cause

Date:


Small scale studies in Israel, India, Brazil, and the United States have found unusual cases of hepatitis in children who previously tested positive for COVID-19.

However, Professor Anil Dhawan of King’s College London says a conclusion of this nature can’t be drawn “because if you look at the number of patients, only 16 percent tested positive for Covid, and this [hepatitis] is not the feature of Covid”.

A third theory linking Covid to the hepatitis outbreak are the national lockdowns brought in to curb the spread of the virus.

Scientists say these lockdowns prevented children from being exposed to viruses and have resulted in a generation of children with weaker immune systems.
