None of the nine young children in Alabama who were diagnosed with hepatitis tested positive for COVID-19 while all had the adenovirus, CDC report reveals

  • The CDC has revealed the results of its first major investigation into cases of pediatric hepatitis popping up around America, and the world as a whole
  • Every single patient in Alabama tested positive for the adenovirus, and none of them had COVID-19 

All of the nine children that were diagnosed with ‘Mysterious Hepatitis’ in Alabama in October and November 2021 tested positive for the adenovirus, and none had COVID-19, a new reporter from the CDC reveals.

The report, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday afternoon, gives the most detailed look yet at the nine case that started what has since become a global outbreak of hepatitis.

All cases tied to the outbreak have been a rare form of the liver disease, not caused by the usual suspects, Hepatitis A, B or C. Instead many suspected either COVID-19 or the adenovirus was behind the infection.

Now, the CDC has revealed that all nine children tested positive for the adenovirus and negative for Covid. The agency also reports that seven of the nine children were female, and fine were two years old or younger.
