Experts note that “there is no link with the anti-Covid vaccine” and “at the moment none of the confirmed cases in the United Kingdom have confirmation of the anti-Covid vaccination”. The investigation by British experts and information from patient samples and surveillance systems, “continues to indicate a link with adenovirus infection. 77% of cases tested positive for adenovirus.” The UK Health Security Agency also highlights that “since it is not normal to see this behavior with respect to adenovirus disease, other possible factors are being investigated that contribute to pediatric acute hepatitis cases such as another infection (including Covid-19) or a environmental cause “. British experts “are investigating whether there has been a change in the adenovirus genome”.
