Severe Myocarditis in Newborns in England and Wales

Comment from a reader:

The World Health Organization warned about severe myocarditis in newborns in England and Wales and then took the alert down on Wednesday. Data shows (WHO article on that more babies have been born with the heart inflammation that is associated with enterovirus infections, which experts say is supposed to be extremely rare.

The WHO confirmed that at least 15 babies have been diagnosed with this. A UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) spokesperson confirmed to The Epoch Times that 10 babies have been diagnosed in Wales and five have been diagnosed in England. The cases happened between June 2022 and November 2022 involving babies under 28 days old.

The UKHSA spokesperson seemed very confident that this had nothing to do with the Covid vaccine.

“Very confident” ? Based on what exactly? By ignoring the implications of the data?
I don’t think “very confident” describes that announcement: more like “very compromised” and indications of colluding to avoid accountability for grievous harms to the public they participated in, while advancing the corporate interests that profited from these harms. Where’s the investigation?

From the article ‘Myocarditis – United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland’:

Situation at a glance

On 5 April 2023, the National IHR Focal Point for the United Kingdom informed WHO of an increase in severe myocarditis in neonates and infants associated with enterovirus infection in Wales compared with 2021. Between June 2022 and March 2023, 15 neonates and young infants presented with a picture consistent with neonatal sepsis in Wales and Southwest England. Enterovirus Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing of nine cases confirmed the presence of either coxsackie B3 or coxsackie B4. As of 20 April 2023, three patients were hospitalized, four patients were being managed as outpatients and two had died.

Although enterovirus infections are common in neonates and young infants, the reported increase in myocarditis with severe outcomes in neonates and infants associated with enterovirus infection is unusual.
