Topics : The syndrome has raised fears that COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, could pose a greater risk to children than had been understood. COVID-19 so far has taken its greatest toll on the elderly and those with chronic health conditions.The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said on Tuesday it launched an investigation after two suspected cases of MIS-C involving an 11-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl were reported on Monday.Both had tested negative for COVID-19, but further analysis was being undertaken, especially as the boy had been in the Philippines between January and March.The boy has already been released from the hospital, and the girl is expected to be discharged soon, KCDC director Jeong Eun-kyeong said.center_img “Both of the two children have recovered from the symptoms,” Jeong told a briefing. “We’re carrying out a COVID-19 antibody test on them to reconfirm whether they were infected, and will determine after the test whether they make the MIS-C cases.”Kwak Jin, a KCDC official in charge of patient management, said the two children had been treated as they would for Kawasaki disease.Having been one of the first countries to suffer an outbreak of COVID-19, South Korea has succeeded in curbing the spread of the virus through a robust strategy to track, trace and contain. last_img read more

Dominica seeks to improve survival rate during road accidents.

first_img Share Dr. Paul Ricketts. (file photo)Dominica is looking to improve its survival rate during road accidents.Chairman of the Violence and Injury Surveillance System Committee Dr. Paul Ricketts says improvement in the availability of emergency staff at the Princess Margaret Hospital is among matters on a draft safety strategy to be sent to Cabinet for consideration. He was addressing the launch of local activities on the Decade of Action on Road Safety at the Arawak House of Culture on Friday last week.“The second broad objective is to improve the crash to theater time for seriously injured individuals requiring surgical intervention. Here we recognize that we need to make some adjustments to how we manage our patients so as to improve the survival rate, bearing in mind that the people who are dying are young and productive individuals,” he said.According to Dr. Ricketts, government will seek to improve the availability of emergency staff at the hospital to get patients to theatre at a much shorter time.“The next step is to finalize and present this draft safety strategy to Cabinet for its consideration and hopeful approval and continue to encourage all government departments, civil society and the private sector to conduct activities geared at improving road safety,” he said.Meantime, Dr. Ricketts says if the Cabinet approves the draft safety strategy, all vehicles entering the country must meet the minimum safety standards. Dominica has so far recorded six road fatalities for this year. Meantime, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Advisor on Violence and Injuries Dr. Tomo Kanda says PAHO will continue to provide technical support to national road safety initiatives.She says a multidisciplinary approach is essential to the success of road safety practices. Statistics indicate that road traffic accident is the leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24.
