Adults and children who have battled Covid are reporting to hospitals in Delhi with post-coronavirus symptoms such as gastrointestinal difficulties, headaches, brain fogging, and shortness of breath, according to doctors at private hospitals.
Aside from MISC (multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children) problems, experts are also seeing youngsters who had mild Covid come to them with delays.
Dr Rahul Nagpal, Director, Pediatrics, Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj said, “Fortunately, children did not have very severe Covid. We got a handful of patients who had congenital heart disease, some kidney disorders, severe asthma or obesity who required hospitalization.”
“Post-Covid we are seeing multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children. It happens in 1 to 2% of cases, but that is also a huge number. With proper drugs and identification, it can be cured. Then there are lots of patients with diarrhoea, fatigue, body ache, digestive issues,” he said.
