Of the children infected with the virus, one child died and 17 had to have a liver transplant. which is very likely that More patients will be found before the cause of the disease can be confirmed. It was also found that most children under the age of 5 had the disease. Although it is detected in children aged 1 month to 16 years.
Check out the 4 symptoms of “mysterious hepatitis”
- diarrhea and nausea
- yellow skin and eyes
The Medical Genome Center at Ramathibodi Hospital is preparing to decode the genetic code if an outbreak occurs in Thailand in order to detect the “virus” or “microbial” that could be causing a number of children around the world now to develop acute hepatitis. for unknown reasons some require a liver transplant
According to the World Health Organization, as of April 21, there have been reports of children suffering from acute hepatitis of unknown cause in the United Kingdom, United States, Spain, Israel, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Italy, Norway, France, and France. Romania and Belgium, with 114 out of 169 cases in the UK alone in the UK, among them were children aged one month to 16 years, and 17 children needed a liver transplant.
Of the 169 cases, adenovirus strain 41 (common influenza virus) was detected in at least 74 cases, 20 of them tested for COVID-19, and both covid-19 and adenovirus were concomitant. But there is no empirical evidence that both viruses have previously caused hepatitis in children. However, it is clear that hepatitis A virus types A, B, C, E, and D were not detected in these children.
Medical Genome Center It provides virus and microbial testing by NGS technology, which is more sensitive than laboratory culture. More than 25,000 pathogenic and many non-pathogenic microorganisms and viruses can be detected.
(Metagenomics) in a single examination. Many viruses cannot be cultured in vitro. Samples to be taken include blood, feces, urine and other secretions.
