As a teacher who’s students live in low income, tenement buildings, I’m very concerned about their status. Additionally, being 61 years old with two autoimmune disorders, makes me wonder what situation I will be placed in by the government, as they try to reopen the nation. Additionally, I work in a rural, high poverty State, and our risk factors have yet to be determined. Couple that with families in rural areas that don’t have health insurance, as they do not seek medical assistance if/when symptoms show.
Can a child with MIS-C and at the same time have COVD-19
An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting
a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfasxt
simply because I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me
to reword this…. Thanks for thhe meal!! But yeah,
thanks forr spending some time to discuss
this matter here on your web page.
My little boy who is 2 1/2 had all these symptoms the week before we went into lockdown. We ended up taking him to a walk in centre where they said he had scarlet fever, gave us a course of antibiotics and told use to inform public health. He was really ill with a fever, swollen gland, sore throat, bright pink blotches all over is body, vomiting and diarrhoea, craked lips and irritable. I read something a few weeks ago about this happening to children in NY but doctors didn’t know what was causing it. It got me thinking that it could be connected to covid, so ive been looking into it since. Any more info on this would be much appreciated
