Earlier, we saw reports coming in that mysterious inflammatory syndrome is severely affecting children with COVID-19. But new reports tell us it has even more than to do with the children. We see that even adults in their 20s are getting affected by the inflammatory syndrome as a complication of COVID-19. In children, we see that this syndrome just affects blood vessels. But in adults, we see there are multiple organs of the body getting involved.
Physicians from the Kawasaki Disease Center say this condition may be under-diagnosed in adults. This is primarily because physicians will only focus on Kawasaki disease as a condition affecting children and not in adults. Moreover, they have thicker chest walls that will be difficult to interpret what’s going on in their hearts. Physicians from the center are screening adults for the conditions and are urging public health officials to raise warnings regarding this concern.
The changing conditions
Physicians are currently experiencing changing presentations of the disease. During the start, they often encountered children with underlying health conditions. But they see that healthier children in young adults are showing up with mixed symptoms of pandemic and inflammatory syndrome. However, these people have antibodies in their blood, which indicates that they are infected long, and it’s a post-infectious condition.
The CDC has addressed this condition has Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in children (MIS-C) and has said it is leading to the rapid decline of patients with the illness. While we see that most of the disease is focused on children in of view, we should also note that adults in the 20s merely children who are on the process of aging. They do realize the real aging occurs in their 30s until then the body lies in the peak of its physiological functions. These functions tend to vary their symptoms as experienced in other diseases like Chicken Pox, measles, etc.
Researchers are still trying to figure out what the exact reasons are behind the occurrence of all this. Physicians say they need sophisticated medical care to fight this emerging problem. Therefore, they are advising all parents and individuals, if they experience any symptoms, to reach out to their nearest physicians. Some institutions have seen 80 percent of getting patients being cured easily. Therefore, there are high hopes that physicians can tackle this situation and people don’t need to begin panicking.
