New York may have as many as 85 cases of children presenting with a new pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome likely linked to COVID-19 — and two more children may have died of the condition, Gov. Cuomo said Sunday.
“If confirmed, the two deaths reported on Sunday would bring the death toll of new inflammatory illness up to five; Gov. Cuomo previously confirmed the deaths of two boys in New York City and Westchester County, as well as a teenager in Suffolk County.
“A complication of the coronavirus the state had not even acknowledged a week ago, this new condition is now being seen across the country and is striking newborns and teenagers alike.
“‘As it turns out, these children happened to have the COVID antibodies, or be positive for COVID, but those were not the symptoms they showed when they came into the hospital system,’ Gov. Cuomo said Saturday.”BIO: Dr. Hart was has several medical degrees from prestigious institutions, including Hofstra University, University of California at Berkley, and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
