USA, UK, Spain, Israel, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Norway, France, Romania, Belgium, Netherlands, mysterious 180 countries such as Canada has raised the risk of the hepatitis virus a global pandemic seen in children. Experts have quoted that at the first sign of the mysterious hepatitis virus, most cases initially complain of nausea and diarrhea, and then signs of jaundice (yellowing of the skin/ eyes) begin to appear.

The mysterious hepatitis virus, which has recently appeared in many countries, can even lead to death, especially in children. In cases of a mysterious hepatitis virus that causes concern, it does not transmit from one to another. All of the reported cases are independent patients. That is why the mysterious hepatitis virus does not have the ability to spread from one country to another, such as the Covid-19 pandemic.


The World Health Organization has announced that a new and mysterious hepatitis epidemic has broken out in many different countries, and this disease affects children.
It was noted that inflammation of the liver is observed in acute hepatitis, which is very rare.

Scientists have announced that hepatitis in children is normal, but it is unusual for severe consequences of hepatitis to occur in children who have previously been in good health.

Turkey Medicals said that hepatitis, in the general sense, means the bankruptcy of the liver. Noting that there are many reasons for this; but the most common causes are viruses called ‘viral hepatitis’ factors,

“Type ‘A’ and type ‘B’ species are very common in them. Type ‘A‘ is more commonly known as ’infectious jaundice’ in the general public. It is transmitted by sexual contact with food, but more often with water and food contaminated with the feces of a sick person.

Hepatitis B is a type of hepatitis that is more commonly transmitted by sexual contact with blood and has more serious consequences; it can be in the form of cirrhosis, cancer. The remaining ‘C’ type, ‘D’ type, and ‘E’ type hepatitis are slightly less common.

Turkey has been widely vaccinating all children against type ‘B’ since 1998 and type ‘A’ since 2011. ”We have started to see very little of this type of hepatitis, but this latest virus has actually not been a virus that we have seen much in hepatitis until now,” was said.


The first cases were seen in Scotland less than a month ago, and the British health authorities warned that within three months, saying that they had detected a year’s worth of cases.

Experts have quoted that most cases of mysterious heptatitis virus symptoms initially complain of nausea and diarrhea, then signs of jaundice (yellowing of the skin/eyes) begin to appear. November symptoms deciphered by specialists also included dark urine, gray stools, itchy skin, muscle pain, fever, lethargy, loss of appetite and stomach aches.

Experts, physical and mental health concerns of children, which leads to weaken the immunity of the children of quarantine for the virus while emphasizing that may have made them more susceptible to disturbing that could be mutated to create a greater threat to pathogens suggested.


Turkey Medicals reminded the World Health Organization (WHO) that a total of 169 cases have been reported from around the world in this way,

“Of this, 114 were reported from the UK. So a thought was born that ‘there may be a causative adenovirus’, but we are still in some doubt because we know that adenovirus does not do such a thing. So it’s not a very accepted event.

In these cases, there was no transmission from one to the other. all 169 cases are independent patients from each other. That’s why we don’t expect much from something like the Covid-19 pandemic spreading from one country to another. Even if it spreads, it will not be a big spread quickly. A little time will also tell you how quickly it will spread.

In addition, Covid-19 has been observed in only 20 percent of these cases. This is no longer unexpected, as children already have Covid-19 at this time. So this has nothing to do with Covid-19.

However, this has nothing to do with Covid-19; when you remove the Covid-19 measures, the child encounters this virus. His immunity is also not enough. As a result, there is a risk of getting sick,” was said.

Officials who conducted inspections in Alabama, the first place where he was seen in the United States, shared up-to-date data and test results. Analyzing the data of 9 patients hospitalized after October 1, 2021, experts announced that these diseases are not related to each other and that the children are in good health, the authorities also noted that the average age of the patients detected in the United States is 3.

The statement said that none of them were sick as a result of the Covid-19 test performed on the children. But scientists have cited adenovirus as the cause of this disease in children. The CDC said that adenovirus was detected in all 9 patients, while it was also recorded that Epstein-Barr virus was detected in 6 of them.

The CDC said that 3 of the patients had acute kidney failure and two had kidney transplants, while it announced that all patients, including patients who had undergone a kidney transplant, were either recovering or were in the process of recovery.
