Doctors have revealed babies born during the Covid-19 pandemic are becoming seriously ill after contracting viruses they haven’t encountered before.
‘Pandemic babies’ with no immunity are ending up in intensive care across Australia with respiratory illnesses
- Rising number of ‘pandemic babies’ with no immunity admitted to intensive care
- Children presenting with ‘co-infections’ with Covid and other respiratory illness
- RSV – respiratory syncytial virus – kills 120,000 young children each year globally
- NSW cases have exploded from 355 a week just three weeks ago to 3775 a week
- There is no vaccine for RSV but it has almost identical symptoms to flu and Covid
A concerning number of ‘pandemic babies’ with no immunity to respiratory viruses are ending up seriously ill in ICU.
Doctors have revealed children born during the Covid-19 pandemic are requiring intensive care ‘from encountering viruses they haven’t come across before’, such as influenza, RSV and Covid.
The children had been born and raised when there were virtually no other viruses circulating in Australia, other than Covid-19.
‘Over the last month or so, we have seen four times the admissions to hospital for flu in children as for Covid,’ Dr Britton told The Daily Telegraph.
Dr Britton said five per cent of the children presenting with co-infections were being admitted to ICU, a statistic he described as ‘very concerning’.
About half of the children had no pre-existing health conditions, with the elevated number of admissions putting pressure on the hospital system.
Some of the ‘pandemic babies’ are presenting with inflammation of the chest, brain and heart caused by influenza, Covid, and RSV.
RSV – respiratory syncytial virus – is a major cause of lung infections in children and can lead to pneumonia or bronchiolitis, which is particularly dangerous in young infants.
Severe cases can kill babies and toddlers, whose tiny airways have not yet fully formed and who struggle to cope with the infection.
‘Among that group who are previously well … It’s not just a chest infection, some of these children can be impacted with the flu affecting the heart and the brain,’ Dr Britton told The Daily Telegraph.
A warning was sounded about RSV three weeks ago when there were just 355 cases a week in NSW, but three weeks later that has rocketed up to 3,775 in a week.
“All humans are born with a thymus gland , sits in the chest right above the centre! It’s purpose is to provide unique immunity to all humans, it shrivels away at 11 years but by then has conferred life king immunity! These babies have been compromised in some way, and we all know how…”
How many of the mothers of these babies received multiple mRNA jabs while pregnant?
