New York: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed “great concern” about the rise in cases of pediatric syndrome on Sunday. Scientists suspect this may be related to COVID-19, which caused at least three deaths in the state .
The mayor said that 38 cases of pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome were found in New York City, and another 9 suspected cases are awaiting confirmation.
Soon after, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that the state health department is investigating 85 potential cases throughout the state, which are similar to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome. One of the deaths was a five-year-old boy.
Howard Zucker, the state health commissioner, said other people included a school-age child and a teenager.
Zac said that, unaware that these children are already ill, they live in three different counties.
Cuomo said two other deaths are being investigated, and if confirmed, the total number of deaths across the state associated with the syndrome will reach five.
Symptoms of the disease include persistent fever, rash, abdominal pain and vomiting, as well as possible inflammation of blood vessels and heart.
Blasio said: “Basically, its role is to trigger a strong, almost overwhelming immune system response in children. This will actually cause harm to the human body.”
The mayor said that all children with related symptoms will now be tested for COVID-19 and antibodies.
The mayor said that so far, 47% of the confirmed cases in the city have tested positive for coronavirus, and 81% of the antibodies are antibodies, indicating that most people have been exposed to rapid transmission at some point Virus.
Cuomo said it is likely that there have been cases before, but because there are no respiratory symptoms, there is no connection with coronavirus.
Kawasaki disease is a mysterious disease that mainly affects children under five years of age and causes inflammation of the arterial wall, causing fever, skin peeling, and joint pain.
The National Health Service issued an alert for the first time last month, warning that there has been a slight increase in children infected with coronavirus. These children have “overlapping characteristics of toxic shock syndrome and atypical Kawasaki disease.”
France also reported several cases.
Although frightening, most recovery has no serious problems.
