USA: 3 Children Died With Strange Symptoms Associated With COVID-19

According to New York governor Andrew Cuomo, three children in the state died after symptoms of a new infection believed to be associated with COVID-19.

Governor Andrew Cuomo on 9/5 expressed concern about the new symptoms thought to be related to COVID-19 similar to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock, leading to aneurysms and damage to the heart.

Cuomo said three children, including a 5-year-old child, died from the new symptoms. State health officials are monitoring 73 similar cases.

Currently, scientists are seeking to determine whether these new symptoms are related to COVID-19. Not all children who have these symptoms test positive for the virus.

Reportedly, three patients died above among 15 children admitted to hospital in New York, USA with strange symptoms and health officials were informed on 4/5.

According to the notice, most 15 children have a fever, some with a rash, diarrhea, or vomiting. Since admission, 5 have had mechanical ventilation and most need blood pressure support. Most of these cases have been or are currently infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

New York state health Chief Howard Zucker said experts are arguing that this is a rare complication in pediatric patients and they believe it may be related to COVID-19.

In recent weeks, a number of similar European cases have been discovered, according to World Health Organization (WHO) scientist Maria Van Kerkhove.
