There are about 200 cases of acute hepatitis of unknown origin in the world, the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

“Almost 200 cases and about 40 have occurred in European countries,” the director of the institution, Andrea Ammon, stressed.

Acute hepatitis is of unknown origin, but its most likely cause is adenovirus, the expert commented.

“Ongoing research points to a link to adenovirus infection,” as this has been suspected since its first notification from the UK a few weeks ago, Ammon said.

In this period, it has been ruled out that the hepatitis was related to the Covid-19 vaccine or possible travel.

The WHO expressed concern over the increase in cases of this disease in 11 countries.
