NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — Louisiana saw an increase last week in a sickness associated with the coronavirus causing inflammatory symptoms in children.
The state saw an increase in Multi System Inflammation Syndrome, a potentially fatal condition believed to possibly be linked to COVID-19.
The Louisiana Department of Health reports three new cases across the state.
MIS-C, as it is called, can cause the inflammation of several major organs, including the heart.
At least one child has died and several others have had to undergo critical care, but recovered.
