Skip to comments.Gov. Cuomo: 102 New York Children Have Inflammatory Disease Possibly Linked To Coronavirus, A ‘Parent’s Worst Nightmare’
Posted on 05/13/2020 5:17:20 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a Wednesday press conference that the state is investigating 102 cases of children with the inflammatory, Kawasaki disease-like condition possibly connected to coronavirus, and that 14 other statesplus 5 European countriesare reporting similar cases.
Cuomo said that 60% of the sick children tested positive for COVID-19, while 40% tested positive for antibodies.
The majority of the sick children are between 5 and 14 years old, Cuomo said, and three have died since the cases began popping up.
Children may have been exposed weeks before to COVID-19, Cuomo said, adding that the illness impacts all races.
A range of symptoms are seen with this condition, including: fever, abdominal pain, skin rash, bloodshot eyes, change in skin color, difficulty breathing, racing heart and lethargy, irritability or confusion.
The number of symptoms makes it even harder for a parent to know what theyre dealing with, said Cuomo, calling it a parents worst nightmare.
Additionally, 14 U.S. states and five European countries are reporting similar illnesses in children following a Monday alert issued by New Yorks Department of Health, Cuomo said.
This is not respiratory, Cuomo said of the illness seen in children. This is inflammation of blood vessels affecting the heart, more of a cardiac [issue].
Children were initially thought to not be affected by COVID-19. According to Cuomo, the condition seen in children does not present as a normal COVID case and may not have been diagnosed as one, since its a respiratory condition in adults. Cuomo also said that symptoms in children might appear weeks after exposure, calling it truly disturbing. According to the New York Times, doctors are referring to this new illness as pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome.
