Pediatrician and Director of Iashvili Children Hospital, Ivane Chkaidze, explains that the most telling symptoms of the multisystem inflammatory syndrome at the post-COVID stage in children are high fever and damage of multiple organs.
Mr. Chkaidze says out of 60 underage patients in the country, 45 were subject to treatment at Iashvili hospital.
The pediatrician also added that a child's temperature, which is higher than 38C, may last for three or four days and even longer. In his words, the child, as a rule, experiences pain from two or more organs. They may have a headache, cough, abdominal pain, rashes on the skin, and joint pain; they may also have swollen hands and feet. "In fact, there is no organ left not involved in the process," Ivane Chkaidze stressed, adding that if the temperature is not higher than 38.5C, giving fever reducers to children is dangerous.
