Three patients in the pediatric department of a hospital in the US state of Connecticut were diagnosed with inflammatory response syndrome, which is probably associated with infection with coronavirus.
Children have acute inflammation of the tonsils, chest, and abdominal pain, but there are no problems with breathing. Doctors monitor the situation and urge parents to pay more attention to complaints of children’s health.
According to Governor Ned Lamont, he was warned about similar cases by Albert Coe, a Professor of epidemiology at Yale University School of medicine.
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said last week that many children who were diagnosed with the inflammatory syndrome had positive tests for antibodies to the coronavirus. Three children with this diagnosis died.
