First Cases Of Coronavirus- Related Inflammatory Syndrome Identified In Children In South Carolina

Source: CNN

By Hollie Silverman and Dakin Andone, CNN, 3 hrs ago.

Two children in South Carolina have been diagnosed with the coronavirus-related pediatric inflammatory syndrome, according to the state's Department of Health and Environmental Control. The children are both under the age of 10, DHEC said in a news release Sunday. One is located in the Midlands region in central South Carolina. The other is in the Pee Dee region in the northeastern part of the state.

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C, is a potential complication seen in some children and teenagers following Covid-19 infections or exposure to those with Covid-19.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory to doctors across the country in May, warning them to be on the lookout for the syndrome. Symptoms include fever, stomach pain, vomiting, a rash and fatigue, according to the CDC.

We continue to see more and more young people, especially those under 20, contracting and spreading COVID-19, and we know MIS-C is a threat to our youngest South Carolinians," State Epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell said in a news release. "MIS-C is a serious health complication linked to COVID-19 and is all the more reason why we must stop the spread of this virus."...

Dr. Ball said, "Anyone and everyone is susceptible to COVID-19 as well as additional health risks associated with it, which is why all of us must stop the virus by wearing a mask and stay six feet away from others." "These simple actions are how we protect ourselves and others, including our children."

Still learning about MIS-C, experts are trying to determine why some children experience it while others do not.

Two recent studies, both published last month in the New England Journal of Medicine show how MIS-C can cause serious symptoms and is potentially fatal. And 80% of patients with MIS-C required treatment in intensive care per the reports.

2. Well I read on a site from a poster that children . . .

can not get COVID-19 because they have small nostrils and airwaves.

4. Kind of stuff they latch onto, regardless of origin, because of their over-riding confirmation bias.

6. And.....

masks dangerously decrease your intake of O2 and the virus can't survive at temps higher than 85 F. So docs, nurses and scrub techs must be passing out right and left during long, surgical cases. And I don't know how the virus survives in the human body at 98 F at least. Magic I guess. The stupid is quite strong with some people.

7. They have a harder time being infected up until age 11 or so.

Then the infection risk increases for purely biological reasons until their late teens. At that point it's fairly steady till death. Notice the data on deaths, on positive tests. The data can be causally explained. (Which, in fact, is why we can explain the data: They cry out, seemingly, for explanation. And since "we" figured out early on how the virus infected a cell, the research was grad-student level.)

Children have far fewer ACE2 receptors. With puberty and adolescence we get more ACE2 receptors. Easy-peasy.

They're also at lower risk of symptoms. High viral low. Infectiousness. Causality's involved in that, and those three things aren't in causal order. And the risk increases with age. Again, same reason.

But kids can get it. It's a question of relative probabilities. Humans truly, massively, heinously natively suck at probabilities.


"Airways" is the word you want. Perhaps the poster had the error. Let's not pave it forward. Oops. Meant "pay."

9. How do people not understand the size of a virus?

That must be why children never get colds or the flu, right?

5. These fucking idiot Republicans and dumb-ass NBC pediatrians.

The more you give this virus room to grow and evolve, the larger the problem will get in populations that, today, are not a problem; or not seen as a problem.
