In India, children who have recovered from the coronavirus were struck by a deadly multisystem inflammatory syndrome, as reported by The Times of India.
The head of the pediatric emergency and intensive care unit of the Institute of Medical Education, Professor Jayashri noted that this disease has been recorded within a year, but the number of cases is increasing.
The exact number hasn’t yet been established, doctors are expressing concern about the lack of official statistics and recommendations for treatment. The numbers in Chandigarh alone range from 42 to 252 cases.
Doctors report that children in general tolerate coronavirus more easily, but after it, minors may develop multisystem inflammatory syndrome.
It’s characterized by fever, rash, vomiting and diarrhea and is often confused with other childhood illnesses. Even those without symptoms should be monitored, experts say.
Pulmonology professor Minu Singh from Chandigarh noted that the syndrome is more likely to affect overweight children.
He also linked its occurrence to a lack of physical activity and walking in the fresh air due to restrictions due to the pandemic.
Earlier it became known that the number of people infected with coronavirus in India approached 30 million.
At the same time, on June 20, about 53,000 infected with COVID-19 were registered in India. The authorities still fear that another wave of infections awaits India, so they are trying to accelerate the pace of vaccination.
