Child dies in France from rare disease linked to virus

Child dies in France from rare disease linked to virus”

The Kawasaki disease is characterized by high fever, rashes, abdominal pain, conjunctivitis and a red or swollen tongue. Tests of serology have shown that the child "had been in contact" with the coronavirus, but it had not developed symptoms of the Covid-19, continued the doctor. He died there after having received care for a week.

Michel, the paediatric doctor in Marseille, stressed that the disease is rare.

But the news of an increased number of cases of a mysterious inflammatory illness, similar to the exotic Kawasaki disease, has become a scare for parents, after doctors said it may be linked to coronavirus. The World Health Organization is only investigating the possible connection. "We call upon all clinicians in the world to work with their national authorities and WHO to be on the alert, and a better understanding of this syndrome (Kawasaki) in children", said the director-general of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

It is the first death of its kind in France following similar child fatalities that are being investigated in London and NY. On Wednesday, a London medical facility likewise reported the fatality of a coronavirus-positive 14- year-old due to the exact same problem.

In total, 141,919 cases of infection have been confirmed in France, 563 more than Thursday evening's.

The myocarditis established by the sufferer was a "very rare case", Michel mentioned. The boy died at Marseilles, too, was " of african origin", according to professor Michel, who does not draw, however, no conclusion: "It may be also populations where the virus is circulating more.
