Rise in babies with abuse-suspected head trauma during lockdown, hospital reports show
A specialist children’s hospital has seen an increase in the number of babies treated for head injuries thought to be caused by abuse, leading experts to warn the medical community that it must stay alert to this ”more silent pandemic” during the coronavirus crisis. Great Ormond Street Hospital in London treated 10 babies, aged between 17 days and 13 months old, for head trauma which was consistent with abuse between March 23 and April 23 this year, according to a letter to a medical journal.
