The “Sun” added that dozens of hepatitis infections were recorded in the United Kingdom.
It is not yet clear what led to the outbreak of this dangerous infection among children in recent weeks.
So far, 74 cases of hepatitis have been recorded in Britain, 3 in Spain, 5 in Ireland, and at least 9 cases in the US state of Alabama.
And the World Health Organization warned that “given the increase in the number of cases during the past month, it is likely that more infections will be recorded.”
The “Sun” said that there are 8 children who underwent liver transplants, after suffering severe disease, 6 in Britain and 2 in the United States.
Symptoms of this disease include: fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, and unexplained weight loss, according to the health website “Web Medicine”.
It may lead to serious complications such as liver cancer and cirrhosis.
And the UK Health Security Agency has opened an urgent investigation into the causes of the outbreak of infection, such as the link with adenoviruses or the Corona virus and other causes.
