Jack McMorrow’s main aim a month ago was to wrap up his school year online. But unfortunately by the end of April, the 14-year-old lad who hails from the Queens borough of New York City was admitted to a hospital in critical condition owing to an inflammatory disease linked to the coronavirus. This ailment, called multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), mainly effects children.

MIS-C has been labelled a “new threat” by physicians at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S.

Notwithstanding the boy has recovered and is with his family at home, the condition is still deplorable. All his organs were inflamed, his veins were dysfunctional and his heart was deteriorating. A painful feeling persisted as the blood flows in the veins. Later, he also tested positive for the covid-19.

First symptom included red rash and throat swelling

One day when a red rash has manifested up on Jack McMorrow’s hands in mid-April, his dad John McMorrow and family assumed that it could be the result of over using a hand sanitiser and later disregarded it.

when Jack’s family members saw that his eyes looked tiresome, they ascribed it to late evenings of computer games and TV. Jack confessed that when he experienced a severe stomach, “they thought it was on the grounds that due to excessive intake of cookies,” said Jack, a ninth-grader in the Queens borough of New York.

After a couple of days, Jack felt feverish and was given an antibiotic by his paediatrician for a likely bacterial infection. Then his condition started to deteriorate, and he woke up four days later with sore throat and a fever of 104.7 F, his father said in an interview.

Red rashes were seen on his hands and legs and he was literally gasping for breath. He said his chest hurt. In a teleconference with Jack’s doctors, the doctors supposed it might be an adverse reaction to medication he’d been given initially for the rash. Generally, an adverse reaction occurs due to a higher dose of medication or any untoward allergic reaction by the skin.

Even at this stage, neither Jack’s family nor his doctors figured it out as the novel Corona virus, because the symptoms didn’t match up with anything, they’d knew about the virus so far, he stated.

The family then rushed Jack back to the paediatric clinic where they diagnosed him for the coronavirus and inflammatory issues like mononucleosis.

In a visual representation on May 19th medical specialists notified that the CDC case studies prove that the disease manifests around four weeks after a child is first exposed to the coronavirus.

A day later, Jack’s body seemed to be non-cooperative. “He couldn’t walk, he couldn’t move his legs, he couldn’t move his body. He was having a fever; he was experiencing chills. Everything was coming on him,” said McMorrow.

Immediately he was rushed to the hospital and put on Intravenous supplements. Initially Jack was tested negative for both the covid-19 and mononucleosis. However, the report further revealed that jack had antibodies for an inflammatory disease and was asked by the doctors to stay overnight for monitoring him.

Over the next six hours, Jack’s health began to deteriorate once again. New lab results were declared later and found Jack tested positive for the covid-19 and also for an inflammatory disease.

Jack’s health grew more worse. His resting heart rate was double the standard level, his blood pressure had markedly dropped to dangerously low levels, and this created greater oxygen demand for his organs to function and later he was intubated I.e putting a tube through the mouth to aid breathing.

Though he had problems of low heart rate, Jack remained in the hospital for a week and was eventually ready to be discharged. Jack suggested every individual to never overlook the symptoms and get immediately tested even if it’s fearsome.

Doctors further examine this case

The analysis out of the U.K. on the inflammatory disease is intriguing, yet it might be “too soon” to be frightened, as a portion of these patients didn’t test positive for the coronavirus, said Dr. Ronald Cohn, president and CEO of Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, in a previous Global news report.

So how does a single virus trigger so many symptoms?

One possible explanation: it doesn’t.

Dr. Gerald Evans, head of the division of infectious diseases at Queen’s University, advices that several other symptoms currently being attributing to COVID-19 are earlier present at similar levels in the general population, or are the effects of any existing severe infection.

For instance, the doctor said, conjunctivitis (Inflammation of eyes) is evident in about 0.8 per cent of COVID-19 cases as per one study. “So, the interesting thing is, if you look at what is the incidence of conjunctivitis in the general population, it’s 0.8 percent. Other symptoms, like nausea or headaches, are already witnessed by innumerable people globally for many reasons, he said, and it should not be ascribed to coronavirus alone.

Dermatologists recently discovered that covid toes is another rare symptom that cropped up in few patients. This is identified by a frostbite-like rash on a person’s toes. Down the lane, such new symptoms including Jack’s case can cause difficulties in treating Covid-19 patients. Although such symptoms are not completely confirmed owing to covid-19, WHO should atleast officially alert everyone to not overlook these symptoms in diagnosing this ever-changing deadly disease.
