Rare, mystery illness in kids that could be linked to coronavirus
Some children in the US are getting sick from a mysterious illness believed to be related to COVID-19 and officials want parents around the country to be aware. While Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome is rare, doctors and researchers are on an urgent search for answers.
“It’s possible that these cases were coming in and not diagnosed as related to COVID because they don’t appear as COVID-19,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in a press conference.
Symptoms of this rare illness
Doctors are alerting the public to a range of symptoms to look out for.
“If they have a child with a fever for more than three days and have these abdominal symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, severe belly pain, that would be the time to call your pediatrician,” said Dr. James Schneider, Chief of Pediatric Critical Care at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
