New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to give an update on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic on Saturday. At Friday’s briefing, he discussed severe illness being seen in children, and urged vigilance.
“While rare, we’re seeing some cases where children affected with the COVID virus can become ill with symptoms similar to the Kawasaki disease or toxic shock-like syndrome that literally causes inflammation in their blood vessels,” Cuomo said Friday.
“This is every parent’s nightmare, right? That your child may actually be affected by this virus. But it’s something that we have to consider seriously now,” he said.
