The death of a child and the injury of dozens .. A rare illness linked to corona spreading in New York
Two weeks ago, dozens of similar cases were recorded in the United States, as well as in France, Britain, Italy and Spain, of children who had symptoms of a rare “Kawasaki disease”.

In New York, the municipal authorities reported on Tuesday that 15 children were hospitalized due to similar symptoms, including skin infections, abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea, and 4 of them were diagnosed with the emerging coronavirus, while developing 6 antibodies indicating the presence of internal inflammation.
In an article on the website of The Lancet, on its website, British doctors describe the first 8 cases of children diagnosed in London, one of whom died.
This disease, which first appeared in 1967 in Japan, affects young children in particular, its origin is not known precisely, but it can be linked to pathogenic, genetic and immunological factors.
Before the emergence of these children, it was known that “Covid 19” disease does not develop in its serious forms in children except exceptionally.
The disease and its respiratory symptoms especially affect the elderly and adults who have risk factors related to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, excess weight and heart problems, or other respiratory diseases, but with the increasing epidemic, therapists are discovering new peculiarities and complications associated with the emerging coronavirus.
The death of the child has been announced, and the epidemic has been slowly receding since mid-April in New York State, which has long been the epicenter of the outbreak of the Corona virus in the United States.
More than 330,000 people have contracted the virus, and more than 20,000 have died, including 216 on Thursday, in the state where about 20 million people live.
“It would really be very painful,” Como said, if a relationship between illness and the death of the child was confirmed, because “many parents were comforting themselves by believing that the virus does not infect children. It is a nightmare that all parents fear.”
