Health Too dangerous: Doctors call for Kinders for children
Hospitals see influx of children with COVID-19 as Alberta battles 5th wave
As Omicron cases surge in Alberta, so does the number of children hospitalized with COVID-19. According to Alberta Health, 43 of the 1,007 COVID patients in hospital Monday were under the age of 18. That included eight who were in intensive care. Those figures are up from last Friday, when 30 youngsters were hospitalized and four were in the ICU. And it's at least double the number seen in previous waves, according to Dr. Jim Kellner, pediatric infectious disease specialist at Alberta Children's Hospital.
Specialists The Hamburger Asklepios Clinic North demanded a ban on football headballs with children under twelve years. The physicians - including neurologists, neck-nose ear specialists and children's turfs - at the same time criticized the attitude of the German Football Corporation, which sets in age-related regulations. "The clinic experts agree that a clear ban on headballs would be the much more responsible version," said a spokesman for Asklepios clinics.
The team doctor of the German national team and head of the Medical Commission of the DFB, Tim Meyer, had warned at the end of January in the end of January: "Such a header is usually not a tangible medical disease." Headproofing could be occasionally occur in head-balls. "Mostly it is not the ball that triggers this concussion, but the contact with the head of the opponent, the shoulder, the post or the ground," Meyer said.
Is March Break really a break? How pandemic-weary parents can recharge and connect with children without a vacation
As students and families in some parts of Canada approach their spring breaks, busy parents and caregivers everywhere may be reminded of the COVID-19 pandemic’s two-year anniversary of March 13, 2020. On this day, the Canadian government issued warnings against all international travel. That was soon followed by school closures across Canada and globally. While some families who can afford vacations or for parents to take time off work may be pushing for a getaway, this year many parents are likely looking for ways to rest and rejuvenate from the parental burnout that two years of pandemic parenting might have brought.
The DFB recommends light balls - partly made of foam - and a small number of header repetitions per training for training in the younger youth classes. Small playing fields in the younger and mini-gates should help to play the balls flat.
The doctors of the Hamburg Asklepios Clinic called on the DFB to immediately relate to the early headball match and suspend the header training for children under twelve years. "To rely on Commissioner in the sense that the problem is practically done by changing game forms in the Kleinfeld, we do not consider sufficient protection for long-term healthiness of our children," explained the Chief Physician of the Children's Clinic at Asklepios North, Markus Kemper .
A Scottish study had found an increased risk of dying in 2019 at footballers to die at dementia or Alzheimer's. An answer to the question of whether head balls could trigger heavy retirement diseases do not exist so far. In England, Scotland and Northern Iirland, there has been a ban on headballs in the training of children under twelve years since the beginning of 2020. In the US, headballs for children under ten years are prohibited.
