Washoe County reports first case of MIS-C


The first case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), a rare disease that adversely affects health, has been reported in Washoe County. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that the cause of the condition is unknown, but many children who have COVID-19 also develop MIS-C.

According to the Washoe County Health District, “the case first tested positive for COVID-19 and recovered, but then came down with symptoms and was hospitalized.”

The CDC website states that the condition, which is rare but severe, causes inflammation in many different organs in the body, and symptoms include fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, eye irritation. And may include fatigue. These symptoms may vary from child to child and may occur in children and adolescents younger than 20, approximately 2–4 weeks after the onset of COVID-19.

The CDC said it is still learning about MIS-C, such as what risk factors are there for it. The CDC wrote on its website, “We have no idea why some children have fallen ill with MIS-C and others have not.”

Washoe County District Health Officer Kevin Dick said, “It re-enforces the importance of testing COVID-19 for everyone, especially children.” “Given that children are most likely to contract MIS-C, it is imperative that we protect our children with COVID-19 by taking safety precautions, such as face covering, social disturbances, and often our hands Washing up. Our thoughts are with the child and their family and we hope to get well soon. ”

More information about MIS-C can be found on the CDC website. Children who display symptoms of MIS-C should seek emergency care immediately.
