The post-inflammatory syndrome of COVID-19 is becoming more complex in children

After contracting the COVID-19 and recovery, the body takes its own time to get to normal. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is not getting rid of our bodies so easily. We already saw how COVID-19 is taking a toll on the hearts of patients and affecting the sports industry. But more saddening news is that children are facing a terrible aftermath situation due to COVID-19. We already saw Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) occurs as a result of COVID-19. Children who do not exhibit respiratory symptoms also get affected and sometimes even be fatal in them. This is what concerning pediatricians and neonatologists around the world in which children get exaggerated inflammation without even exhibiting symptoms. But a new study adds further insight into how this inflammation is getting even worse in children.

In a new review at The Lancet, a team of experts reviewed 40 studies that included a total of 662 patients who developed the syndrome. Of the total patients, it was seen that 71 percent of the children needed Intensive Care Units with an average length of hospitalization for about eight days. In addition, all of these patients had a fever, and the majority of them had diarrhea, and vomition with rashes and conjunctivitis also noticed. The overall mortality in this study was about 1.7 percent, which might sound low, but it is pretty high than the overall mortality rate of COVID-19, which is 0.09 percent.
