The World Health Organization last evening called on health authorities worldwide to be on alert for a multisystem inflammatory condition in children, that has been reported from Europe and North America.
Speaking at a press briefing, Director-General of WHO Tedros Adhanom said this condition is speculated to have links to the Covid-19 virus.
” Reports from Europe and North America have described a small number of children being admitted to intensive care units with a multisystem inflammatory condition with some features similar to Kawasaki’s disease and toxic shock syndrome. Initial reports hypothesise that this syndrome may be related to COVID-19, ” he said.
Tedros Adhanom called on clinicians across the globe to be on alert in this regard and to work with national authorities and the WHO to better understand this condition.
Covid-19 Cases have topped 4.5 million globally, with the global death toll deaths exceeding 307,600, as of this morning.
