In Britain, this disease is called PIMS. In America, it is called MIS-C. Listen to someone say a new disease like Kawasaki. These are all the same diseases. This disease usually affects children. However, anyone under the age of 21 can be affected. Although very few children are affected by the disease, in some cases it can be fatal. It can even be fatal. Studies have shown that the disease is more prevalent among Asians. So we need to know the symptoms of the disease. There are effective treatments for this heart disease. Although the disease is serious, almost all children recover with timely treatment. So it is important to recognize this disease at the right time.

Type of symptoms of this disease?

There are many types of symptoms and heart disease is seen differently in different children.

The most common heart disease symptoms are:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Thin closet
  • Abdominal pain
  • Rash
  • Eyes become red
  • Neck pain
  • Excessive fatigue

If these symptoms appear, do not panic. Having a fever or a thin stool does not mean that you have heart disease. Even before the onset of the disease, children had a fever or diarrhea. Maybe yet. So do not panic, if these symptoms appear, consult a doctor.

Whose heart disease is it?

This disease is more common in children. However, it has also been seen in young people. If anyone under the age of 21 has symptoms, be careful. Most of those diagnosed with the disease were infected with coronavirus at that time or a few weeks earlier. Or was in contact with a corona-infected patient. Some patients did not know they had corona because they did not get sick. The disease has reappeared several days after the onset of corona symptoms. In some cases, the heart disease appears 69 days after the onset of corona symptoms, that is, about two and a half months later.
