Since the end of last month, more and more fears have been published about the spread of a new type of hepatitis, which is spreading in children. Moreover, the spread and worsening of this type of hepatitis, caused by adenovirus 41, is statistically associated with SARS-CoV-2 infections among children and adolescents.
To date, according to official data, 350 cases have already been reported in 20 countries, which means that thousands of children between 1 month and 16 years of age are already infected worldwide. Moreover, because this virus is airborne, the cases of infection and the tragic results will only increase. So far, according to agencies such as:
– UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA)
– European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control
– US Centres for Disease
Recommendations have been made to prevent the spread of the virus through constant hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene, which includes the use of masks. So far no drug or vaccine has been found against the disease and there ARE already cases with severe and fatal consequences.
"Cases are aged 1 month to 16 years old. Seventeen children (approximately 10%) have required liver transplantation; at least one death has been reported" by WHO.
How can we prevent infection and prevent children from transmitting this hepatitis? One preventive measure is ultraviolet light, which destroys adenovirus molecules and all types of adenovirus in seconds (from ASHRAE).
DESAIR equipment with UV technology serves to prevent the spread of airborne diseases and is a preventive measure in case of increased hepatitis infections among children. In the case of adenovirus 41, DESAIR eliminates it in less than a second.We insist and recommend the installation of equipment with UV-C technology in all types of closed premises where contact between children is possible in order to avoid the spread of this type of disease. Our equipment is certified in more than 50 countries and has quality certificates in the elimination of viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Today we are talking about children's health, i.e. the health of future generations. There should be no delay, and it is always worth remembering that it is easier to prevent disease than to treat it. Especially when the disease has no known cure.
