British states found a number of children’s injuries, and the appearance of strange signs on them similar to those associated with infection (Kawasaki Disease).
The same injuries were also observed in New York City and some other US states!
In turn, the World Health Organization (WHO) indicated that there are a number of children infected with the emerging coronavirus, whose infection required them to remain in intensive care.
However, the organization indicated that the relationship between children’s infection with the emerging corona virus and the development of symptoms of Kawasaki disease was not clear, and about whether it was limited to the areas where the infection was recorded only.
What is Kawasaki disease?
Kawasaki disease is an inflammatory disease that causes swelling or swelling of the body, usually affecting children under five years of age, with no apparent cause for the disease.
The symptoms of the disease include the following:
A very high fever that lasts for at least four days
Red eyes, lips and tongue
Swelling and redness of the hands and feet
swelling in the neck;
In some rare cases, infection may develop into Kawasaki Disease Shock Syndrome, which is associated with severe infections that cause severe illness in children.
In addition, doctors have noticed that some patients have another syndrome called Pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS), which is similar to Kawasaki disease, except that it affects older children.
