Bell said he and other doctors at Children's National have been keeping tabs on the condition as other cities report similar patients. He recently tested positive for coronavirus and was diagnosed with a paediatric inflammatory syndrome related to the virus. All three cases tested positive for antibodies to COVID-19, which means they likely had the coronavirus at one point before developing symptoms.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo Tuesday said three deaths in the state have been linked to the illness, known as pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome. "They're hoping he pulls through with 100 per cent recovery but they said there have been children with lasting effects".
Dr Sara Hanna, the Evelina's medical director said: "We probably saw the first case in the middle of March". Internationally, a small number of children in the United Kingdom have become ill, and there have been cases in Italy and Spain as well.
