Covid-19 in Children

While most children with COVID-19 are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, it is still difficult to determine which children will progress to moderate or severe COVID-19 early in the progression.

Some of these children develop Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children, MIS-C, a severe inflammation of organs and tissues.

Methods to distinguish children at risk for severe COVID-19 complications, including conditions such as MIS-C are needed to enable development of early interventions to improve pediatric patient outcomes.
