Rare symptoms found in some children suffering from COVID-19 in NY
Dozens of children in the US are admitted to hospitals suffering from serious inflammatory symptoms, which may have their roots to COVID-19.
Some cases first detected in Europe were thought to suffer from Kawasaki disease, which is an illness involving inflamed arteries. But now New York authorities had confirmed 64 such cases in the state and these children need intensive care as they have heart inflammation.
Some doctors in New York suggest that this may be a rare complication of COVID-19, but this is still not proven.
Chief medical correspondent Dr. Jen Ashton said that parents are not required to be worried about this rare event as it remains unique, and most kids have mild symptoms of COVID-19.
The signs and symptoms related to this complication are:
- Eye irritation
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Swelling of the hands and feet
As this symptom is new and there is no particular treatment for it, the children with such conditions require ICU and some supportive treatment.
"Again, doctors are treating the symptoms because we don't know the cause yet," she said.
Ashton also said that the reports suggest that only a small percentage of children are found positive, which is less than 3%.

Father and daughter busy in making hygiene kits for the homeless in LA
A resident of LA, Michael Batistick, and his 4-year-old daughter Mia had got themselves busy with making 100 hygiene kits for the homeless all-around LA.
Michael used to work rigorously for the homeless with SELAH, but current closures and stay-at-home had forced him to change his way of providing help. So, he and his daughter had made a building station at their home to create hygiene kits. By this activity, Batistick aims to spend some fun time with his daughter.
Batistick said: "Right now, we can't do direct engagement. We cannot go out and do what we usually do. So right now, we're trying to do what we can without putting people experiencing homelessness at risk,"
As he and his daughter Mia are stuck at home, this provides them with an excellent way to spend some quality time and also teach Mia the importance of giving back.
"We're probably doing this all weekend because there's 100 to make, and we have eight made, but it's a fun thing to do," he said.
If you also wish to help the homeless, you can visit www.selahnhc.org for more resources.

Salons fear for safety as they reopen considering the state’s guidelines
Columbus Salon owner Evan Joseph and co-owner Brain Deal said that the announcement that the salons will reopen from May 15 shocked them as they were expecting it to be earlier.
The reopening of salons will be allowed, but only for salons following all the guidelines that were created by the government and an advisory group of stylists, owners, and more.
But according to Joseph and Deal, they not even heard of any such advisory group; otherwise, they would have tried to be a part of the group.
According to an online petition launched Friday, the man said that the guidance is somewhat incomplete, and the state needs a better framework to reopen.
Deal and Joseph are worried about their employees and customer as, at this time, it is vital to be safe. They are especially concerned about the issue that employees have to wear a mask and not clients.
According to guidelines, it is almost impossible to maintain social distancing as a salon has a workspace, lobby, break room, office, etc.
They feel that the other stylists think the same and fear going back to work, but they are forced to go to work due to economic pressure. These times had also put a very high financial strain on independent stylists and small salons.
But they had continued to pay their employees through all the difficult times.
Central Ohio nurse took to NYC to help people suffering from COVID-19
This pandemic had almost all over the country equally, but some people are coming forward to help others in this hard time. One such example came from Central Ohio, where a nurse gone to other hot spots to help others with her skills as a nurse.
Tia Carrington moved to New York in April as NY had a huge number of COVID-19 patients and took to work on the front line, despite knowing all the risks and distance she has to keep with her family.
"I saw the opportunity. Somebody told me about it, and I jumped right on it," Carrington said.
Her mother Jan said that she wanted to work in the medical field since she was seven years old as she had seen her mother and grandmother doing this from childhood.
According to Tia, the experience is very different from the one she faces as a nurse at Nationwide Children's.
Every day she loads a shuttle with several other nurses from Times Square hotel for the short trip to Williamsburg.
She had been working in NY for some weeks in one of the newest COVID-19 testing facility.
"I saw the opportunity. Somebody told me about it, and I jumped right on it," Carrington said.
Jan and 13-year-old daughter Aubrey waits for the FAceTime call from Tia, which is a chance to see her.
“I think it’s a lot of stress and a lot of people depending on her,” said Aubrey. "I'm very proud of my mom."

Denver Health workers are coming together on Tuesday to get a seat in the hospital's executive
table as they are vexed with hospital policies and lack of proper PPE kits and sick time.

knew that our employers were going to provide us with more than just one week paid sick leave
and expect us to dip into our paid time off," said a Denver Health employee anonymously to keep
her identity private fearing risk of retaliation.
Loryn Ceaario, Communication Workers of America said"Just today with the launch of the public
The campaign we’ve had dozens of members sign up to be a part of the union."

proper safety equipment like PPE to ensure the safety of both themselves and the patients.
