Doctors concerned over COVID-19 impact on kids

Nancy K. Sweitzer, MD, PhD KOLD News reports one more reason to prevent COVID-19 exposure risks, particularly concerning as more children begin in-person learning - myocarditis, heart inflammation. “The biggest problem with young people is that children get myocarditis at a particular rate. It’s a disease that affects kids. So when a kid shows up with myocarditis right now, it’s often really hard to tell if it’s myocarditis caused by COVID or myocarditis caused by something else,” said Nancy K. Sweitzer, MD, PhD. Parents need to focus on prevention - frequent hand washing, social distancing, and wearing a mask.
