In the Kurgan region, children with COVID-19 develop a rash, joint pain and inflammation of the mucous membranes. The new symptoms were named by the deputy chief physician for the medical department of the regional children’s hospital Svetlana Larionova and the acting director of the regional health department Alexei Sigidaev, informs Ura.ru.
“It can also be a cough, fever, which does not respond to the action of antipyretic drugs. This is joint pain, inflammation of the mucous membranes. The clinic is similar to gastroenteritis, when there is abdominal pain, loose stools, ”said Larionova.
The Russian doctor emphasized that such symptoms indicate a severe course of the disease. Moreover, everything depends on the timeliness of the treatment, the specialist said.
Larionova also recommended vaccinating children against influenza, because, according to research, vaccinated children are easier to carry viral infections. In addition, due to the flu vaccine, minors are less likely to experience complications leading to pneumonia and bronchitis. This is due to the fact that vaccinations help the body prepare immunity, the medic explained.
According to the Acting Director of the Kurgan Regional Department of Health Sigidaev, in neighboring regions, underage patients with COVID-19 are on artificial lung ventilation devices.
“You have to train your immune system to respond appropriately. In a child, the immune system can adequately respond in two ways – either the child is constantly ill, or it is vaccination, “he said.
Earlier, the epidemiologist Gorelov called the COVID-19 symptom that occurs in every fifth child. According to him, this is a lesion of the gastrointestinal tract – with the spread of the delta strain, the proportion of children with such symptoms increased from 2 to 20 percent.
