Description:

Three children are hospitalized in the intensive care unit of an Israeli hospital for treatment for a rare inflammatory syndrome that can cause damage to the heart, thought to be triggered by the coronavirus.

The highly rare, post-viral condition called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) can develop about a month after SARS-CoV-2 infection and causes multiple organs to become painfully inflamed.

The two girls, aged 9 and 10, and a 16-year-old boy were receiving treatment at the Kaplan Medical Center in the central city of Rehovot, Channel 13 reported on Thursday.
