Pediatric specialists are sharing stories of children experiencing symptoms that include persistent fever, extreme inflammation, and evidence of one or more organs not functioning properly.
Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C), the CDC states “We do not yet know what causes MIS-C. However, many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19 or had been around someone with COVID-19”. An immune response emerges resulting in significant levels of inflammation in organ systems. The CDC is currently researching MIS-C further.
