Multi Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C) Posted 08/13/20
Parents and Nurses,
We want to inform you of a correlation drawn by the CDC in children exposed or had coronavirus. Know that this is just a correlation and there is not much known but the health and safety of your children is the main concern.
MIS-C is a condition where different organs of the body become inflamed including the heart, lungs, skin, eyes, kidneys, brain and gastrointestinal organs.
Symptoms to be on the look out for include fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes and fatigue.
Currently there have only been 570 cases confirmed of MIS-C in children who had or were exposed to COVID-19.
The CDC does not know what causes MIS-C. They have only found a correlation is some children affected by COVID and this condition. If your child experiences any symptoms contact your doctor immediately.
