Teenager DIES from new coronavirus-linked disease. Does Johnson still want schools reopened?

A class at school: suppose all the schools in England reopened at the start of June. How many pupils from a class like this would have Covid-19 – and/or the new ‘Kawasaki disease’-type infection – within a week?

A boy aged 14 has died of a new “hyper-inflammatory” disease after he tested positive for coronavirus.

The youngster had no underlying health conditions but tested positive for coronavirus. Note that nobody knew the pandemic had affected him until he was brought in to be treated for the new infection.

He died in Evelina London Children’s Hospital, where more than 40 children have been treated for the disease, which resembles “Kawasaki disease”.

It is believed that 120 youngsters are being treated for the new disease across the UK.

According to the Health Service Journal, an urgent alert was issued to doctors after a rise in cases over the last month:

The alert to GPs, marked “significant alert” states: “Please refer children presenting with these symptoms as a matter of urgency.”

Both messages said: “The cases have in common overlapping features of toxic shock syndrome and atypical Kawasaki Disease with blood parameters consistent with severe COVID-19 in children.

“Abdominal pain and gastrointestinal symptoms have been a common feature as has cardiac inflammation.”

Visible symptoms include high temperatures, swelling, red eyes and a red rash.

Any parent or guardian observing these symptoms in children should seek hospital treatment for them immediately.

This new development may put a block on Boris Johnson’s plan to reopen schools from the beginning of June.

Teachers across the country have already announced that they will not support such an early lifting of lockdown restrictions for children, and fear of a deadly disease connected with Covid-19 is likely only to strengthen their resolve.

At the time of writing, the government has yet to comment on the new contagion.

    I’ve never heard of Kawasaki disease. Just looked it up and this is what it says;

    The symptoms of Kawasaki disease are similar to those of an infection, so bacteria or a virus may be responsible. But so far a bacterial or viral cause hasn’t been identified.

    As Kawasaki disease isn’t contagious, it can’t be passed from one person to another. This makes it unlikely that it’s caused by a virus alone.

    Kawasaki disease can affect children of any age. It can be more serious in children under the age of 1.


    The children who develop Kawasaki disease may be genetically predisposed to it.”

      This isn’t Kawasaki disease, but a new infection with similar symptoms – so don’t get your hopes up.

      The symptoms are similar to kawasaki disease. Obviously the cause is Covid-19. Viruses can affect children. My son used to get Henoch Schoelein purpura , causing inflammation and swelling of the joints.

    The only sensible course of action is to shut down all schools until Measles, Covid 19 and Kawasaki diseases (at least) have been eradicated world wide.
