THURSDAY, Sept. 10, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- There have been 792 confirmed cases in the United States of a rare condition in children that is linked to COVID-19, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.
The agency added that multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) was also associated with 16 deaths reported in 42 states, New York City, and Washington, D.C., as of Sept. 3.
Nearly all cases of MIS-C occurred in children who tested positive for the new coronavirus, while the remainder were in youngsters who were around a person with COVID-19.
The CDC said Hispanic/Latino and Black children have accounted for more than 70 percent of those with the condition, which can cause inflammation in the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs; fever; abdominal pain; vomiting; diarrhea; neck pain; rash; bloodshot eyes; and feeling extra tired.
