Rare inflammatory condition affects some kids with COVID-19

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — With the number of cases of COVID-19 related illness on the rise in children, New York City is launching a multilingual PSA campaign to inform parents and caregivers.
New York City is now reporting 82 cases of Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome (PMIS), Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday.
53 of the PMIS patients tested positive for COVID-19 or antibodies, the mayor said. One has died.
If your child has symptoms including persistent fever, rash, abdominal pain and/or vomiting call your doctor immediately, city officials say.
Residents who need to consult a doctor are advised to call 311.
