He was given a randomised dose of intravenous immunoglobulin, which is being tested as a possible treatment for children.Jane, 50, said: "The doctors told us that Aiden's body was fighting the virus and his organs were in a battle."A few hours after the treatment he started to pull around, he said he was starving which is always a good sign."

"I would urge everyone to get their vaccination. It infuriates me when I overhear parents saying 'my child won't get sick with the virus'."They don't know that. Mine certainly did."'Threat to any age'Alex Ramshaw, the trust's lead research nurse for the trial, said: "I am pleased to say that Aiden is the only child we have treated for Covid-19 in this study. headtopics.com
"His involvement in the trial was so valuable in building our knowledge of the impact these potential treatments may have on children."Aiden is a fit and healthy boy - but he still got Covid and it made him very unwell."His case proves that this virus is a threat to anyone of any age, it doesn't discriminate.

People wants to learnt it in a hard way.. Just get jab..thats it you are protected and as well as you protect the whole community.. Crazy people You do know even if you get the vaccine you can still catch the so called virus...so I mean this post is just stupid I’m a mum and I wish him all the best, but he hasn’t had the vaccine? It’s still transmissible with the vaccine so I’m not sure how it helps the children? I’ve had them and I’m still cautious for my boys sake. This article is misleading?
Daily propaganda from BBc Im fully vaccinated however i believe incarvexx is a better solutions to vaccines. I understand that it is a strong statement however if the solution stop the virus to entry into your body and its spread. Think, and protect yourself and family. ACTOR! What about the perfectly healthy children who died after having the ‘jab’?
My son has been in resus twice with croup. Sometimes children get sick, it still dkesnt justify experimenting on millions of them. Propaganda I no longer trust your articles after you had an actor on last time.

Ppl do not know if it will affect them or not so err on the side of caution & jab. Best to b safe than sorry & hv fingers crossed. Unfortunatly its the BBC and we all know BBC = CNN = ALL BOLLOX. A campaign by BBC to get KIDS jabbed with expiremental 'vaccine' that they do NOT need. You are CROSSING A LINE ne!!
Amen and Amen Let people make there own decisions don't try and scare people into it this supposed vaccine is still on trial and has had alot of double jabbed people in hospital or dead my family won't take this until the trial is over and then we will decide our lives our choice Just popped into comments to read the mental gymnastics being performed by anti vaxxers. Hey guys, you didn’t let me down 👏
If you have noticed a lot of dis/misinformation swirls about kids and COVID. While it is not the killer it is in adults (yay!) in the US it hospitalized and killed more kids than a bad flu year according to cdc. As cases rise you see more kids in the hospital bc math. fearmongering the young to have a jab .Threatening to take away their freedom if that don't. HOW is this right.
Stop with individual “urging to get the jab” I’m glad the young lad has made a recovery! But one child in several million! And your scaremongering pressurising parents into guilty jabbing! Just for record, my husband has had two jabs! And has had a nasty time with covid! Looks like he is near death as well😩
Fans say Ava Phillippe doesn't look like her mum Reese Witherspoon anymoreAfter months of saying how identical Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava Philippe are identical, fans are now saying Ava looks different in latest Insta post.
Surely this article needs to carry information in how many health children have been seriously ill with the virus, otherwise you could find the one person that will swear you need to wear a hard hat because their child was hit by falling space debris. It's a no brainer. How about the thousands who don't have any symptoms? 🤷♀️ Why do they need a vaccine?
Children are getting COVID. The Government should not be using them as a ‘vehicle’ to achieve herd immunity. The same old shamble non sens propaganda article like we're used to from fakenews BBC the replies 😭 amazing！ Nah I'm ok. Good luck tho ✌ Seriously

Mum in tears on Haven trip as family can't sit together 'due to Covid rules'A MUM was left in tears after her family was forced to sit at two separate tables during their Haven holiday.
Mum could be made 'homeless' if she doesn't take council house 150 miles awayNadia Zaman was evicted from her home in June after the breakdown of her marriage meant she could not afford to pay her rent. She has now told she must accept a house in Stoke-on-Trent or face homelessness So take the council house. Times are hard. If there’s NO houses then what does she expect? Marriage breakdown, so why isn’t the father helping to house their 3 children? Can her family not help house relatives? And help with childcare while she gets a job to pay for her kids instead of our taxes. IF you want a council house ....you have to take what ever comes, otherwise take private housing
