Coronavirus warning – CDC warns doctors over Kawasaki-like disease linked to COVID-19

While children can be infected with coronavirus and become ill, they’ve been shown to be less susceptible to infection than adults and their symptoms are generally milder.

But the CDC has now issued an advisory on an inflammatory disease which mainly affects children and an association with COVID-19.

The condition is called multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) and has been likened to Kawasaki disease – an illness which causes inflammation of tissues in the body, including the hands, feet, mouth, lips, throat and even the whites of the eyes.

MIS-C was first reported in Britain in late April, where experts found the first clear evidence that infection with coronavirus causes the Kawasaki-like condition.
