And it starts - unintended consequences of the lockdown

| No Comments

What happens when people act on a first-order problem and do not consider that there might be second- and third-order consequences down the road.  From Reuters:

Almost 200 cases of unexplained acute hepatitis reported in children
Around 190 unexplained cases of severe hepatitis have been reported in children around the world, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said on Tuesday.

The outbreak was first reported this month in Britain - which has registered 111 cases, mostly in children under 10 - and has since been identified in at least 12 countries worldwide.

Some 40 cases have been recorded in the European Union and European Economic Area, ECDC director Andrea Ammon told reporters in a virtual briefing.

The United States and Israel have also seen cases.

That is the first four paragraphs of the article - let's scroll down to paragraph nine:

She said a theory that COVID-19 lockdowns may have weakened children's immunity, because they were less exposed to common pathogens while in isolation, was one of several being considered.

BINGO!!!  Our immune systems require constant challenges.  If we isolate.  If we place ourselves in a bubble and constantly sterilize ourselves and our environment, we weaken our immune system and the first case of a common cold will lay us out flat if not outright kill us.

The virus causing these infections is a common one — an adenovirus — not hepatitis.
