Latest Coronavirus News: Donald Trump Threats Sanctions Against WHO


The mother of an eight-month-old baby who died of a rare Covid-19-related illness urged parents to be “watchful” for the symptoms and called for more research on the disease.

Alexander Parsons of Plymouth died last month at Bristol’s Children’s Hospital after being diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, his family said.

Medical experts believe that up to 100 children in the UK have been affected by a condition similar to the rare disease, the symptoms of which include high temperature, rashes and swelling.

The researchers said the new syndrome could be caused by an over-reaction of the immune system to the coronavirus.

Alexander’s mother, 29-year-old Kathryn Rowlands, said she hoped to raise awareness while calling on parents to “be very vigilant, be very aware of the symptoms and watch them.”

“I can’t change anything that happened to Alexander; we thought we were taking all the precautions to protect us and him from Covid-19, and it has always happened to us, ”she said.

“We were isolated, we didn’t even risk going to a store because we were worried, and it has always happened to us.

“It can happen to anyone and I cannot change what has happened to him, but I can inform other parents and potentially help other babies and children. “

Ms. Rowlands called 111 when Alexander started showing high temperature, a rash that looked like a sunburn, and swelling in his lymph nodes.
