Mysterious cases of hepatitis in kids hit 300 – the 9 signs parents must not ignore - The Mirror
The sudden rise of hepatitis cases in children is prompting health bosses to remind parents to stay alert for symptoms as the outbreak grows.
The reasons behind the sudden spike in hepatitis are not clear as the World Health Organisation revealed on Friday there were 300 probable cases spread over at least 20 different countries.
This is an extra 18 cases recorded as of May 3, compared to April 29.
Health bosses have reported that more than half of hepatitis cases are in the UK, with 163 detected since January 1 this year.
Fortunately, none of the children have died in the UK but worryingly 11 have needed a liver transplant and 13 children are in hospital, while 88 have been discharged and made a fully recovery.
According to UK health chiefs, vomiting and jaundice are the most common symptoms experienced by children in hospital with liver inflammation.
According to WHO, one death of hepatitis has been confirmed with five reported by the US and three by Indonesia. However, infection by the usual hepatitis types A-E has been ruled out as a potential cause.
Although a common virus called adenovirus is being closely looked at as this can cause sore throats, ear infections and stomach bugs.

Fabian Ruiz transfer news: Napoli star gives Newcastle firm deal answer as Arsenal learn fate
Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has reportedly rejected a transfer to Newcastle because he feels there are more glamorous clubs out there, amid links with Arsenal.
Both Premier League clubs could look to sign a new midfielder in the upcoming transfer window as a key priority. Newcastle have already enjoyed great success from January arrival Bruno Guimaraes. He has proved influential in their recent recovery, but the Magpies are looking further up the table still following their takeover.
Arsenal, meanwhile, can cement their progress under Mikel Arteta with a top-four finish this term. Thomas Partey and Martin Odegaard have proved vital in midfield, but Mohamed Elneny’s likely departure will leave a gap.
And recent reports have claimed that both Arsenal and Newcastle are after Napoli’s Spain international Ruiz.
The 26-year-old moved to the Serie A side from Real Betis in La Liga in 2018. He has subsequently formed a vital part of Napoli’s midfield, making 163 appearances.
However, his contract expires next summer and it remains unclear if he will renew. Should he decide to move on, though, AS journalist Mirko Calemme insisted that Ruiz has a clear preference.
“The Spaniard said ‘no’ to Newcastle because he knows he can aim for a more prestigious club,” Calemme …
Labor Committee's Small Business Assault Largely Thwarted | - CBIA
In terms of the Labor and Public Employee Committee’s agenda this year, the writing was on the wall before the legislative session even began.
CBIA once again successfully advocated against virtually every one of the committee's proposed workplace mandates this session.
However, the stars aligned for organized labor around one proposal pursued for decades—the so-called captive audience bill, SB 163.
The bill allows employees to walk out of any employer-sponsored meeting if the employee subjectively believes the employer is discussing political matters, including legislation or regulations that impact business operations or employer involvement in civic or community events.
CBIA learned early in the legislative session that despite then Attorney General George Jepsen's warning that an identical bill was preempted by federal law back in 2019, the issue was organized labor’s top priority.
Labor's efforts were bolstered when Attorney General William Tong testified that he believed the bill was different enough to avoid the preemption issue, without citing any legal developments or additional court precedent.
Regardless, this provided cover to sympathetic lawmakers, like many of those serving on the Labor Committee, to push the bill through the legislature.
The state Senate approved SB 163 on a 23-11 vote April 21, followed by the House April 29, which approved …

163 Connecticut town and cities receive first payments from nip bottle surcharge - WSHU
Cities and towns in Connecticut are getting the first round of checks from a new surcharge placed on mini liquor bottles, known as nips.
Last October, the state placed a five-cent surcharge on the sale of alcohol bottles smaller than 50 milliliters. The money goes back to municipalities to address littering — which often includes discarded nip bottles. Towns received their first checks at the end of April.
“We actually collected $1.8 million in nickels and we distributed that to 163 towns and municipalities throughout the state of Connecticut,” said Larry Cafero, executive director of the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Connecticut, which supported the surcharge bill. “That legislation specifies that that money has to be used for an environmental purpose.”
Cafero said some towns will use the money to fund new environmental-related positions, while others will purchase street sweepers and equipment to filter litter from storm drains.
Norwich City Manager John Salamone said the city received over $40,000 in the first round of payments. That money will fund a new job position that will oversee recycling in the city.
“This person will be in charge of making sure we maximize our recycling programs and come up with some other ideas for enforcing it,” Salamone …
