Scientists recorded the increase in scarlet fever among children around the world, and compared its spread with the spread of the “emerging” Corona virus.
Scarlet fever arises from a substance produced by the Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria (group A streptococci) when contaminated with a specific type of germ. Scientists have identified a large number of new bacteria, which carry out a stronger attack inside the body, and the disease usually affects children between the ages of two and ten years.
According to scientists, scarlet fever, like the Corona virus, is spread through coughing or sneezing, and symptoms include sore throat, fever, headache, swollen lymph nodes and a distinctive red rash, according to the “Mirror” website.
The scientists added that the disease is still contained, due to the measures taken to prevent the spread of the emerging “Corona” virus, according to Sputnik.
