Between 30 and 40 Thai youths, who have recovered from COVID-19 infection, have been found to be suffering from multiple-system inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C, and one might have died from the condition, according to Professor Dr. Somsak Lolekha, president of the Royal College of Paediatricians of Thailand.

 

MIS-C is a rare but severe condition which can develop in children and adolescents who have been infected with COVID. It usually appears 2-8 weeks following the infection. The young patients can develop a persistent fever of more than 38oC for more than 24 hours, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea, rashes, conjunctivitis, cardiac damage and shock.

 

In such cases they must see their doctor immediately.

Weird that it only popped up in thailand...

That's only because in this particular instance, these odd cases are receiving such attention. 

Probably exist elsewhere just not spoken of.

There are numerous weird long covid conditions that are in evident worldwide.

No, it was flagged up several months ago in Europe and America. Thailand is actually a bit behind with this one.
