COVID has caused other viruses to behave bizarrely, experts say, and children are at risk.
Coronavirus has been the world’s biggest problem for two years now, and all the money has been spent on controlling it.
But its existence has affected the trends and behavior of other bugs, experts say.
It includes hepatitis in children, smallpox, respiratory diseases and heartburn.
Some mainly affected children – and parents were asked to be aware of the symptoms and check their children’s vaccinations.
Dr. Scott Roberts, a medical expert at Yale, told the Independent: “Now that people have unmasked, places are opening up and we are seeing viruses behave in a very strange way that they did not behave before.
“We have never seen the flu season last until June in the United States. Covid obviously had a big influence on that. ”
Because we spent so much time indoors, immunity to common viruses declined.
Normally, children in kindergarten and school would become infected with a number of beetles in the early years and slowly build up a defense.
But he goes to school without any protection, which leads to a flood of viruses and a change in data trends.
In the summer months, when it is often a problem in winter, there have been unusual jumps in RSV – a respiratory infection.
Outbreaks of scarlet fever, or so-called “Victorian” disease, have been appearing throughout the country in recent months.
Unusually, there was a mysterious outbreak of hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) in children this year.
Research by the UK Health and Safety Agency (UKHSA) continues to suggest a link to previous adenovirus infection.
“However, the investigation continues to reveal the exact reason for the increase in cases,” Dr. Renu Bindra, UKHSA’s Chief Medical Consultant.
Professor Simon Taylor-Robinson, a hepatologist at Imperial College London, said:
“Therefore, exposure to viruses such as adenoviruses could now be responsible for the more exaggerated symptoms observed by some of these previously isolated children.”
The UKHSA said it was investigating whether coinfection with another virus such as Covid was the driving force behind it.
“Some children with acute hepatitis have recently contracted Covid-19,” the UKHSA said.
“But there were a high number of Covid-19 infections in this age group, so it’s not unexpected.”
The consequences of the pandemic have led to a decline in children’s vaccinations.
Dr Vanessa Saliba, an epidemiologist consultant at the UK Health and Safety Agency (UKHSA), told The Sun: two years.
“This decline in coverage means we have less protection against infectious diseases, such as measles, with the risk of an outbreak.”
Measles vaccination has fallen to its lowest level in a decade, the UK Health and Safety Agency (UKHSA) said in February.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says 95 percent of people need to be vaccinated against measles to keep them under control.
However, the latest figures from September show that only 85.5 percent of five-year-olds received their two doses of MMR vaccine – which protects against measles, mumps and rubella.
Most public health resources have been devoted to monitoring Covid in recent years.
As a result, other diseases such as chickenpox and tuberculosis could spread quietly, the Independent said.
In March, the UKHSA called on the public and health professionals to help reverse the upward trend in tuberculosis (TB) cases.
Health and Welfare Minister Sajid Javid said it was “very worrying” to see an increase in cases after “significant progress has been made over the last decade towards eradicating tuberculosis in England.”
The incidence of TB has been growing since 2019, and although it stopped in 2020 because of Covid, it has been on the rise again since then.
Babies, toddlers and young children are at higher risk of contracting tuberculosis than healthy adults.
The World Health Organization warned in early June that smallpox could spread in communities “for months or maybe several years.”
The bug was seen a hundred times in May in countries where it does not commonly occur.
This includes the United Kingdom. In almost all cases, however, they were men between the ages of 30 and 40.
Dr Babak Ashrafi, clinical director of ZAVA UK, said: “An investigation is underway into how the virus has spread and what caused the outbreak.
“Did the Covid-19 virus and / or the lock-up play a role?”
“There is no evidence that the smallpox virus is associated with Covid-19 or any of the vaccines.
“However, lifting the blockade and returning to international travel may have reopened the door to new infections.”
