Kawasaki syndrome kills three children in New York

Three children in New York have died due to a rare inflammatory syndrome linked to the COVID-19. We already saw that a rare inflammatory syndrome is coming up in kids linked to the possible coronavirus. The governor lately disclosed a death of five years old who died due to a possibly due to a shock syndrome or the Kawasaki disease. This was the first reported death in New York. But it seems that the disease has also taken the lives of three other young children. While their identity and details of the death are unknown, there is an increasing concern for this manifestation of disease in young children. Moreover, the governor added that officials are reviewing 73 cases on children who exhibited similar symptoms.

The governor added that it is a truly disturbing event as most people tend to believe young people are not at risk of COVID-19. Researchers also speculate that it has been going for several weeks undiagnosed. Therefore, New York’s health department is partnering New York Genome Center and Rockefeller University to lookout if there is any genetic predisposition.

The CDC has also asked New York to develop a nationwide criteria to diagnose these symptoms relate to COVID-19. Scientists are still trying to figure out whether these symptoms are linked with all children. Furthermore, clinical studies will reveal more facts about the syndrome. With New York being the epicenter of the pandemic, we should also equally focus on the children is also. Future studies will tell us how we go about this issue in children.
