(by Paul Joseph Watson | Summit News) – The CDC is now investigating 180 cases of children with hepatitis of an “unknown cause,” although health experts in the UK say the cause is likely kids having weakened immune systems due to lockdown.
Five deaths have occurred in the U.S. as a result of the infections, which have swept the globe, impacting numerous countries.
“Adenovirus infection is being investigated as being the possible cause, with nearly half the kids testing positive for the pathogen,” reports CNBC. “Adenovirus is a common virus that normally causes cold or flu-like symptoms. It is not a known cause of hepatitis in otherwise healthy children.”
As we highlighted last month, health experts in the UK warned that the outbreak was likely caused by multiple COVID-19 lockdowns preventing kids from socializing with others and therefore developing strong immune systems.
Adenoviruses cause the common cold, but this can develop into hepatitis if a weakened immune system is unable to fight it off.
“I think it is likely that children mixing in kindergartens and schools have lower immunity to seasonal adenoviruses than in previous years because of restrictions,” said Professor Simon Taylor-Robinson.

“This means they could be more at risk of developing hepatitis because their immune response is weaker to the virus,” he added.
Nowhere in the mainstream reporting of this new surge in cases is it mentioned that multiple lockdowns could have caused the outbreak
Instead, the CDC is still “conducting lab tests to see if the Covid virus might also be a possible cause,” despite the fact that the children impacted in the initial cluster of cases in Alabama did not have COVID-19.
The legacy media is loathe to admit that the same lockdowns they vehemently supported will have drastic consequences for years to come.
As we previously highlighted, a new study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that lockdowns in the UK caused around 60,000 children to suffer clinical depression.
A major study by Johns Hopkins University concluded that global lockdowns have had a much more detrimental impact on society than they have produced any benefit, with researchers urging that they “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
Many infants are also suffering from cognitive developmental and speech disorders due to adults wearing face coverings during the pandemic.
