Coronavirus suspected of causing rare childhood disease | COVID-19 Special

How vulnerable are children to Covid-19? Signs are mounting the risks are bigger than originally thought. Doctors around the world are working to understand an illness with possible links to the coronavirus, found in children. It shares symptoms with the rare, potentially life-threatening blood condition, Kawasaki disease, which can cause toxic shock. Cases were first reported in the UK, Italy and Spain, and now the United States is seeing clusters of the disorder. The more we live with coronavirus, the more we learn about who it affects and how.

Translated from Brabants Dagblad daily in the Netherlands today:

Dutch hospitals have treated twenty children in recent weeks for a rare inflammatory disease. They had symptoms of Kawasaki disease. Eleven of them were also found to have antibodies to the new coronavirus in their blood, meaning they had that disease recently.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

In New York alone, there are 102 patients, according to Governor Cuomo. Three children have died. Fourteen other U.S. states also report cases, according to The New York Times.

In France, the total number of cases last week had risen to 135. One little patient has died.
