In the US doctors 15 States are investigating cases of children’s diseases. Only in the state of new York officially found 102 children that have this mysterious illness, three children died.
“We lost three kids in new York because of this. 5-year-old boy, 7-year-old boy and a little girl who was 18 months old. These cases are all over the state, everywhere, where people reside”, – said the Governor of the state of new York Andrew Cuomo.
“As the state of new York, 16 other States and 6 European countries reported cases of children suffering from disease that is potentially linked to COVID. We need to understand all that is possible, and as quickly as possible, when it comes to our children,” — wrote the Governor of new York on Twitter.
Until that time, the coronavirus was considered the most dangerous for the elderly and those with chronic disease. However, a new mystery illness could indicate that the virus carries a much greater risk for children and adolescents than previously thought.
All patients with a mysterious disease had at least two of the following symptoms: rash or signs of inflammation around the mouth, hands or feet; shock or low blood pressure; heart problems, violation of bleeding, acute gastrointestinal disorders. High fever usually lasts more than three days.
