Beijing and Liaoning provinces are the original centers of the Pandemic. Countless sick children are admitted in the pediatric hospitals here. Realizing the seriousness of the problem, many schools have canceled classes. Apart from students, teachers are also sick. This is reminiscent of the days when the covid 19 virus started spreading.
What are the symptoms?
High fever and pneumonia are the main symptoms in infected children. But they did not show the cough that is common in respiratory viral diseases like flu or RSV. It varies in severity, with some requiring hospitalization.
The World Health Organization (WHO), which has requested China to take immediate action to reduce the risk of infection, has suggested that it provide more information on the respiratory problem. It has advised people to take precautionary measures in areas where outbreaks have been reported. He said to maintain cleanliness, contact a doctor for symptoms of respiratory problems and stay informed about the situation.
Many pathogenic bacteria
Compared to the past three years, northern China has seen a sharp rise in influenza-like illness cases since mid-October.
PROMED, an international disease surveillance platform, warned on Tuesday about undiagnosed pneumonia ravaging children. Much of the current Pandemic is unclear. As of now, it is said not to cause much trouble to adults. But it is spreading widely among children and the school environment is said to be the reason for this. Due to this, mask wearing has started again in China.
The respiratory disease has increased since last week due to relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions. Beijing’s National Health Commission (NHC) said the spread of pathogens, including influenza and common bacterial infections, posed a problem for children. Wang Quanyi, a health expert, said that there has been an increase in the coexistence of multiple pathogens in Beijing.
