Children Experiencing Frightening After-Effects From Syndrome Connected To COVID-19

Frightening neurological complications can happen in children who develop a mysterious condition linked to the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

A new study says survivors can suffer headaches and muscle weakness, along with visible signs of damage to the brain.

According to Gizmodo, the condition is commonly known as multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C.

MIS-C is a rare but potentially life-threatening occurrence that arises during or soon after being infected by COVID-19.

Study reveals post-COVID syndrome severely damages children's hearts

Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), believed to be linked to COVID-19, damages the heart to such an extent that some children will need lifelong monitoring and interventions, said the senior author of a medical review. Case studies also show MIS-C can strike seemingly healthy children without warning three or four weeks after asymptomatic infections, said Alvaro Moreira, MD, MSc, of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr Moreira, a neonatologist, is an assistant professor of paediatrics in the university's Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine. The team reviewed 662 MIS-C cases reported worldwide between January 1 and July 25. Most of the 662 children suffered cardiac involvement as indicated by markers such as troponin, which is used with great accuracy in adults to diagnose heart attacks.

New Study Finds Forever Chemicals In Seltzer

A Consumer Reports investigation has found that toxic “forever chemicals” are in several popular bottled water and carbonated water brands. According to the EPA Per- and polyfluoroakyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemical compounds that don’t easily break down in the environment, or the human body. They’re found in many consumer products, including food packaging, textiles, and nonstick pans. Gizmodo reports they are also found in drinking water itself.

Researchers Find Light Frequency That Kills COVID-19 Virus Without Harming Humans

Gizmodo reports scientists have discovered a specific wavelength of UV light that’s both safe for people and can kill coronaviruses, both on surfaces and in the air. Researchers from Columbia University and Japan's Hiroshima University, have found that a UVC light wave of 222 nanometers does the trick. It's unable to penetrate the eye’s tear layer or the dead-cell layer of skin, preventing it from reaching and damaging living cells in the human body.
