At least one case has been tentatively diagnosed here, of a child from the Rochester area who was in the intensive care unit of Golisano Children’s Hospital in UR Medicine at the end of last week. An update on the status of this child was not immediately available on Sunday.
The syndrome can affect many organs and appears to cause symptoms that differ from breathing problems or other conditions often associated with COVID-19.
