In this outbreak, experts are not yet certain what exactly is causing hepatitis in children.

However, Dr Nighat shared that the cases they have looked at so far seem to stem from adenovirus.

The doctor explained: “We think that 70 percent of the cases and the data and the research that’s coming through, there’s a particular type of virus.

“Now, adenovirus is a very common virus – we have hundreds of cases of adenovirus.

“In some of the studies, particularly when they looked at the cases in Scotland, they found there’s adenovirus 41 which we think is causing this type of hepatitis.”

However, adenovirus doesn’t seem to account for all of the emerging cases. So, Dr Nighat urged looking out for signs and symptoms.
