What is the link between COVID-19 and Pediatric Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome?

Scientists are nonetheless making an attempt to find out whether or not the syndrome is linked with the brand new coronavirus as a result of not all youngsters with it have examined optimistic for the virus.

Nationwide, almost 100 children have been diagnosed with the newly identified syndrome, which has been called pediatric multisymptom inflammatory syndrome. If they get worse, take your child to the nearest emergency department or call 9-1-1.

On Thursday, a 5-year-old boy passed away from complications believed to be caused by COVID-19, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of NY, has said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday that three children in NY have died from a rare inflammatory syndrome believed to be linked to the COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus.

Cuomo later tweeted that there have been 73 reported cases in NY of children falling severely ill with a toxic shock-like reaction that displays symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease.

The syndrome is thought to be related to Kawasaki disease, a rare but serious illness previously noted in children with COVID-19 in the United Kingdom.

The cases share overlapping features of toxic shock syndrome and atypical Kawasaki disease. He mentioned hospitalizations and intubations continued their downward pattern, additional proof the state has gained a measure of management over the virus. "Some kids develop a rash or red eyes, which are also symptoms of Kawasaki Disease".

"This is the last thing we need at this time", he said.

On Friday, Cuomo said NY has shown success in containing the virus. Instead, in children who present with the inflammatory syndrome, the virus appears to be attacking their heart. It is prudent that we come together to ensure minority communities have access to quality health care and testing, which is why I stand with Gov. Cuomo in partnering on COVID-19 testing expansion in low-income and minority communities.

Almost all of the 50 US states will have taken steps to relax lockdown measures by this weekend, including states like Arizona and MS, which are reporting increasing infections of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, highlighting the risk of a new wave of outbreaks. A state Health Department official said the child had symptoms of toxic-shock syndrome. "What that may mean, and this is speculation - that this may be a post-infectious problem". The new deaths were of a man in his 80s and a man in his 90s, both with underlying health conditions.

Parents have been advised to seek immediate care if a child has prolonged fever (more than five days), difficulty feeding (in infants) or is too sick to drink fluids, severe abdominal pain, diarrhea or vomiting, change in skin colour, trouble breathing, lethargy, irritability or confusion.
