CDC Warns of Possible Coronavirus-Related Syndrome in Children

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is issuing an alert warning doctors and clinicians across the country to watch for a dangerous inflammatory syndrome in children that could be related to the coronavirus pandemic.

New York state data show that the majority of the cases are in children between the ages of 5 and 14.

The syndrome, which some in the medical community are calling Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome Potentially Associated with COVID-19, is marked by persistent fever, inflammation, poor function in one or more organs, and other symptoms similar to shock, and was first reported several days ago by New York officials.

Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state health department is investigating about 100 possible cases.
