Idaho Has Treated Children With Syndrome That Can Affect COVID Patients

In May 2020, many countries that had an outbreak of the coronavirus started reporting an inflammatory syndrome in some children. This is now called multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C for short. Though this syndrome is rare, kids in Idaho have experienced what can be a serious medical condition.

Idaho Matters learns more about MIS-C from Dr. Kenny Bramwell and Dr. Derrick Duplaise from St. Luke's Childrens Hospital in Boise.
