In Australia, there’s a rising number of what they call ‘pandemic babies’ with no immunity admitted to intensive care.
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.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead infectious diseases paediatrician Dr Philip Britton said an analysis of ICU admissions across shows babies are testing positive for influenza and Covid at the same time. What they are not reporting however, is that most of these parents were vaccinated for covid 19.
Around a fifth of those developed the potentially lethal bronchiolitis, with 40 per cent of them ending up in hospital.
