MIS-C Awareness Week
December 13, 2021 – December 19, 2021
A rare and severe condition associated with Covid-19 is MIS-C (Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children). This condition can cause “different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. We do not yet know what causes MIS-C. However, we know that many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19. MIS-C can be serious, even deadly, but most children who were diagnosed with this condition have gotten better with medical care.” – CDC (Español)
