Deadly Syndrome Plagues Children with COVID-19


Health Editor’s Note:  VT posted an earlier article informing about MIS-C and  the NIH’s intent to find ways to predict which children will get MIS-C after contracting COVID-19. Some children become quite ill and die from MIS-C. 

Trump downplays children getting COVID-19, saying they do not get as sick as adults. Not True! Trump thinks if the schools reopen, he will get gold star points that will be reflected at the voters’ polls in November. With the debate of opening schools during the continuing pandemic MIS-C should be a prime factor in decision making…Carol

COVID-19–Associated Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children — United States, March–July 2020


In April 2020, during the peak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in Europe, a cluster of children with hyperinflammatory shock with features similar to Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome was reported in England* (1). The patients’ signs and symptoms were temporally associated with COVID-19 but presumed to have developed 2–4 weeks after acute COVID-19; all children had serologic evidence of infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 (1). The clinical signs and symptoms present in this first cluster included fever, rash, conjunctivitis, peripheral edema, gastrointestinal symptoms, shock, and elevated markers of inflammation and cardiac damage (1). On May 14, 2020, CDC published an online Health Advisory that summarized the manifestations of reported multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), outlined a case definition, and asked clinicians to report suspected U.S. cases to local and state health departments. As of July 29, a total of 570 U.S. MIS-C patients who met the case definition had been reported to CDC. A total of 203 (35.6%) of the patients had a clinical course consistent with previously published MIS-C reports, characterized predominantly by shock, cardiac dysfunction, abdominal pain, and markedly elevated inflammatory markers, and almost all had positive SARS-CoV-2 test results. The remaining 367 (64.4%) of MIS-C patients had manifestations that appeared to overlap with acute COVID-19 (24), had a less severe clinical course, or had features of Kawasaki disease.§ Median duration of hospitalization was 6 days; 364 patients (63.9%) required care in an intensive care unit (ICU), and 10 patients (1.8%) died. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand in many jurisdictions, clinicians should be aware of the signs and symptoms of MIS-C and report suspected cases to their state or local health departments; analysis of reported cases can enhance understanding of MIS-C and improve characterization of the illness for early detection and treatment.

  1. It can be extremely deadly; I am 37 years old. In Late February I inhaled a very high viral count in a small 12×8 steam sweat room at a public pool from a gentleman who was coughing and sneezing in the confined quarters. Within one week I had what appeared to be a common flu. After 10 days it was replaced by pneumonia like symptoms which rapidly progressed into acute cytokine storms by day 17. It nearly killed me, but I managed to knock out the storms and viral replication in my lungs by nebulizing MCT oil. By day 23 most of my symptoms disappeared. On day 40 the arose yet again as bad if not worse than they had 20 days earlier. Toxic shock syndrome is a perfect description, that is exactly what it felt like. My kidneys nearly completely shut down. My lungs were in absolute shock and I had another near death experience. I also suffered from cerebral vascular distress, which was later rectified with the nootropic Noopept which increases endogenous antioxidant capability of the brain by 340%. On day 60 I had awoke from sleep and felt like I had been hit by a mack truck. Like I had lost 1.5 litres of blood; I had never been that tired in my life, it felt like I had nearly died and was extremely lucky to have survived. I am a healthy young adult with a good diet who does not smoke tobacco. I was shocked at the devastation the virus wreaked on my body. I attribute my experience to a high viral count inhaled from the getgo, which is why masks are extremely useful in significantly lowering (not eliminating) initial viral count.

    High anti-oxidant diet has been a life saver. Vitamin-C, NAC, cocoa, cinnamon, cloves, (the latter three are the most powerful anti-oxidants on earth) and especially BHT have been extremely helpful and knocked out subsequent reinfections that took place 100+ days later in just a matter of one or two days. Placing himalayan pink salt neath the kidneys and any lingering pains in the back prior to sleeping completely reverse the thrombosis and oxidative stress better than anything else. Nothing else worked for me.
