Twelve cases of Pediatric Multisystemic Inflammatory Syndrome, associated with Covid-19 have  been registered  at the  Hospital del Niño (Children’s Hospital) since the first was detected in July.

The hospital authorities specified that a group of specialist physicians has developed and approved a protocol in which the parameters for the care of patients suspected of having the syndrome were established.

Dr. Ximena Norero, infectologist at the hospital reiterated that this syndrome associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID -19), consists of an exaggerated inflammatory response, in which different organs of the body are affected.

The protocol establishes the diagnostic criteria, the laboratory tests that are recommended, and the treatment that should be applied.

"They have the purpose of serving as a guide and support to pediatric doctors in the country so that a uniform and comprehensive care can be provided to all children and adolescents suspected of this diagnosis," said Norero in a statement from the hospital.

Fever, swollen glands, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, as well as rashes that appear on the child's skin in areas such as the thorax, abdomen and extremities, are among the symptoms that affected patients present.

This is an internationally recognised syndrome of Covid 19 and shouldn’t be trivialised. It does not fall into the it’s only a flu category as beloved by Brown and co so it’s embarrassing for him. The only way out is to do a Trump and pretend it doesn’t exist. Sad but what more can be expected.

Typical responses from trumpanzees who argue against anything contrary to the lies and ignorance of their cult leader.

Both of your comments are no surprise given your propensity for denigrating the IQ of Panamanians. The only smart ones around are you two. All racists need to crawl back into the wood work where they belong.

Jb, I thought the same thing. I wonder, if by chance, these children were recently vaccinated ... perhaps even with a flu shot. But, no, it must be a Covid complication; what isn’t?

Everything is linked to covid. When I saw the accident news with 7 deaths my first thought was well the covid death numbers just went up by 7.
