B.C. confirms first case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in a child

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 4,036 cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 5,884 in the Fraser Health region, 240 in the Island Health region, 590 in the Interior Health region, 350 in the Northern Health region and 89 cases of people who reside outside of Canada.

There are 1,494 active COVID-19 infections in B.C. and the number of people in hospital has dropped by 10 to 74.

There has been one new COVID-19 related death, for a total of 251 deaths in British Columbia.

"There was a small number of children, some of whom had antibodies or had tested positive for COVID, so there was a worldwide effort to see if we can quantify this and understand it". "There is no risk to those in the public who are picking up packages, and there's contact-tracing underway right now". Symptoms of MIS-C include fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes and feeling exhausted.

Henry said the case is a good reminder that while COVID-19 is generally less severe in children, no age group is immune from suffering serious illness caused by the novel coronavirus.
