The CDC on Thursday issued a national alert to doctors over mystery hepatitis
Children are coming down with liver inflammation but the cause is not clear
Nine kids in Alabama were afflicted but didn’t have the common hepatitis virus
In the UK, 108 children have been stricken, with eight requiring liver transplants
Suspicion now centers on adenoviruses, a common family of mild infections
UK experts believe that weakened immunity from lockdowns plays a role

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

U.S. health officials have sent out a nationwide alert warning doctors to be on the lookout for symptoms of unexplained hepatitis in kids, after clusters of mysterious cases in the US and UK.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding its probe after scores of young children came down with severe liver inflammation, but did not have the viruses hepatitis A, B, or C that usually cause it.

In the alert on Thursday, the CDC said it is working with counterparts in Europe to understand the cause of the infections, and urged doctors across the country to report potential cases.

A common cold virus known as an adenovirus has been confirmed in several of the European cases, but not all.

In the UK, researchers have speculated that kids may have weakened immune systems due to rounds of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

However, the US cases of pediatric hepatitis are so far all in Alabama, a state that did not pursue the most stringent pandemic restrictions, deepening the mystery.

UK health authorities on Thursday said they have identified a total of 108 cases of pediatric hepatitis. In some instances, cases were so severe that children required liver transplants.

Additional cases have been reported in Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands and Spain, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Hepatitis simply means liver inflammation, which can have causes ranging from viruses and toxins to alcohol abuse.

The U.S. alert directs doctors to report any suspected cases of the disease that occur with unknown origin to their state and local health departments.

It also suggests doctors conduct adenovirus testing in young patients with symptoms of the disease, which include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, light-colored stools, joint pain, and jaundice.

The warning followed a CDC investigation with the Alabama Department of Public Health into a cluster of nine cases of hepatitis of unknown origin in previously healthy children ranging in age from 1 to 6-years old.

The first such U.S. cases were identified in October 2021 at a children´s hospital in Alabama that admitted five young pat…
