The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made a connection between COVID-19 and Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). 


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday released guidance that schools, businesses, and other organizations can use as states reopen from coronavirus shutdowns.


CDC issued a health advisory to doctors across the country Thursday advising them to be on the lookout for a troubling new syndrome that may be associated with COVID-19 infection.


The syndrome, called multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), has been seen in children across Europe and in at least 18 states, plus Washington, D.C.


"In early May 2020, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene received reports of children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome," the CDC health advisory said. "There is limited information currently available about risk factors, pathogenesis, clinical course, and treatment for MIS-C," it said.


"CDC is requesting healthcare providers report suspected cases to public health authorities to better characterize this newly recognized condition in the pediatric population," the advisory said.
