CHILDREN WITH SKIN BURNS INCREASE DURING THE WINTER, STUDY SHOWS

A total of 5,349 children were admitted to hospital emergency rooms suffering from skin burns since the beginning of the winter, according to Beterem, the Israel National Center for Child Safety and Health, which is currently holding Burn Safety Awareness Week.

This season’s figure is 6% higher than last year, and there are many more burns that go unreported, said Beterem director-general Orly Silbinger on Monday.
