Kawasaki syndrome or coronavirus scary for kids Source:

Kawasaki Syndrome is another one of the satellites of the current coronavirus.

Now it may seem that the coronavirus was a party and you can relax. But it is not — it just became a little less talking. The number of new infected each day still in the tens of thousands, and scientists keep finding new side effects. Not new, but important to understand is Kawasaki syndrome. Recently, it has become increasingly diagnosed, and scientists link it with coronavirus. According to research, among its owners, a large part was (or is) a carrier COVID-19. To decide if he's dangerous or not to see this phenomenon is.

Dangerous coronavirus for kids

In recent years, increasingly began to meet the view that the coronavirus can lead to the development of Kawasaki syndrome in children. This is a fairly rare disease, but against a pandemic, the number of diagnoses has increased several times and most cases were reported from children who were infected with coronavirus.

At the beginning of the pandemic, said that the coronavirus is not so terrible for children as for adults. They say they are , and get sick much easier, but against this, people are too relaxed.

Scientists have yet to study Kawasaki disease.

Then everything changed. Starting in April, experts have begun to track the cases of children have Kawasaki syndrome, which often led to severe forms of development and even to fatal outcomes. Symptoms vary greatly as the degree of severity, but many children were in intensive care that could not fail to cause alarm

The Idea that COVID-19 spares the young, the false, — said Dr. Lawrence K. Kleinman article in Science Daily — the Parents must continue to take the virus seriously.

Symptoms of Kawasaki disease

Kawasaki Syndrome was discovered relatively recently, and scientists do not have much experience studying him. Therefore, they do not know how to treat patients diagnosed with its symptoms. Meanwhile only in the USA hospitals are about 100 children with this disease.

In addition , this situation raises other questions. For example, is it possible to open the schools to let children out in public places, and most importantly, how they are generally treated?

Among the symptoms experts are blood clots in the lungs, chest pain, palpitations and failure of certain organs. In some cases this leads to a cardiac arrest. Scientists are inclined to believe that the problems are caused by one reason — a change in the properties of blood vessels, which become more fragile.

According to one version it is a complex reaction of the child who has no idea what to do in this case and begins to save the body damages the organs and tissues of the vessels. In any case, it always requires emergency medical care. These data including shared Dr. Christopher Strother, Director of emergency medical services in the hospital mount Sinai in new York, in an interview with The Washington Post.

The Washington Post is monitoring the situation and often interviews with doctors and patients.

The CDC and who called it the "multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children" (PDF), or MIS-C. It is also called "pediatric Multisystem inflammatory syndrome" or "pediatric giperosmolarna syndrome".

In the early stages of a pandemic, doctors noted that children less than adults there are symptoms COVID-19, which require the premises to the hospital. In General this is true, but it turns out that kids have their disease. It is also noted that children are less likely to spread the coronavirus, but now it can be questioned.

Why apply Kawasaki's disease

Encouraging information relaxed parents and they become less responsible attitude to the protection of children against coronavirus, but as we see, in vain. Cases are becoming more and scientists don't know, maybe it's a symptom manifests itself through time, or Kawasaki disease is manifested immediately after . Perhaps the wave will only increase.

A hallmark of diseases caused by coronavirus in children, is that they do not experience breathing difficulties, but in General the disease often occurs much harder. It is noteworthy that the cases where the symptom occurs in children without coronavirus, doctors explain the insufficient quality diagnosis and possible errors are identified.

There is also a version that Kawasaki disease may already be "on edge" in the bodies of some people (especially children), but «trigger» it is just a coronavirus. That is, even if he didn't hurt the man, he can start the mechanism of Kawasaki disease.

Many diseases are already within us and just need to run.

What they say about the Kawasaki syndrome patients

One teenager,the told reporters the New York Times about his feelings after he has recovered from Kawasaki disease. He described this feeling as if "someone injected you an injection of pain". At the same time he the disease was not in the acute stage.

12-year-old girl told The Washington Post she remembers the only "strange" blueish lips and feeling "super tired" before the doctors said that she suffered a cardiac arrest.

Currently, there are no known methods of treatment of Kawasaki syndrome. No they for coronavirus. But despite this, scientists continue to work and try to think of something. We can only protect each other, corny as it sounded, and most importantly, to protect themselves and not to neglect the masks, sanitizers, social distance and other measures of prevention. Every person needs to understand that he's the one and only it can protect themselves from the disease. As well as their children.
