Health authorities in Europe and the U.S. are now racing to find answers about the recent mysterious hepatitis outbreak in nearly 200 children across the globe.

The Daily Mail reported that it has now found its way to fourteen different countries, including the United States and Canada.

On another side of the story, 100Percent FedUp noted that the outbreak comes as Joe Biden plans to lift Title 42, a public health order that allows illegal immigrants to be expelled before applying for asylum. Title 42 was enacted during the Covid-19 pandemic to prevent outbreaks at the border.

On Saturday, the World Health Organization said it had received reports of at least 169 cases of “acute hepatitis of unknown origin” from 14 countries. Cases were detected in children aged one month to 16 years, and the WHO did not disclose in which country the death occurred.

The majority of cases are in the UK (114 cases), with approximately 200 cases reported in total. It 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.

Health officials have speculated that lockdowns may be to blame for the Hepatitis outbreak, as reduced physical contact weakened people’s immunity.

For those of you who are not familiar with Hepatitis, it is 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 crucial as it removes toxins from the blood, is involved in metabolism, and regulates blood clotting, among other functions.

More details from a The Daily Mail Report:

“Suspected cases of the mysterious hepatitis sweeping the world have now been detected in children in Japan and Canada.

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.”
