Cuomo Says 3 Children Died From Mysterious COVID-Related Illness
BY BOBBY CUZA NEW YORK CITY
Governor Cuomo announced Saturday that a total of three children have now died from a mysterious COVID-related illness, a development the state is now making a top priority.
Symptoms of the condition, which include prolonged fever, rash and severe abdominal pain, resemble a rare illness called Kawasaki disease, and at times bear the markings of toxic shock syndrome. The phenomenon has come to light only in recent days. Friday, Cuomo announced the first known death; a five-year-old boy hospitalized in New York City, and said other deaths are being investigated. There are 73 known cases in New York, he said.
