New complications of coronavirus in children


Doctors in the UK said that there has been an increase in severe complications in children with coronavirus recently in the country. The National Health Service says small patients end up in intensive care with a multisystem inflammatory symptom that leads to abdominal pain and heart problems. However, not all children have a positive test for coronavirus, some have a negative test, but there are signs that patients have developed antibodies to the virus.

In all cases, there are signs of toxic shock syndrome and the atypical form of Kawasaki syndrome with blood indices comparable to severe cases of COVID-19 in children, – The Paediatric Intensive Care Society charitable organization reports on Twitter, citing a letter from the National Health System.

Doctors were urged to report such cases urgently. The total number of children with new complications is not specified.

Note that earlier doctors talked about another new symptom of coronavirus in children and adolescents.
