Health Alert By CDC On Cases of Hepatitis In Children

Everyone falls sick, but when it comes to children, we need to be extra cautious. The health alert by CDC about Hepatitis in children is certainly a cause for concern.


The health alert by CDC requests parents and providers of health facilities to monitor symptoms in children and report hepatitis cases in children, specially those cases which do not have any associated cause to the local and state health departments.

From last year, there have been around nine cases of Hepatitis in children, found in Alabama, where a cause was not found for the illness. Similar group infections were found in different countries, including United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, and Scotland.

In Alabama, the children with Hepatitis are facing problems like, liver failure and liver injury. Health officials are still searching for factors that are causing Hepatitis in children.
