Children's hospitals see disturbing rise in MIS-C, a complication of COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released statistics of a disturbing trend on Thursday, highlighting the sharp rise in MIS-C cases in children who recently had COVID-19.

According to the health agency, there has been a 12% increase in cases of the multisite, inflammatory syndrome in children since late August. At children’s hospitals across the country, many doctors are saying that they are treating more cases of the rare disease than ever before.

“We had a nice long break from those cases over the summer and even into the fall where we could get an occasional MIS-C case here and there, but in the last three or four weeks, there has definitely been an uptick. And I would anticipate that to continue through the next several weeks,” said Dr. Amy Edwards, an infectious disease specialist at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, to CNN.

At Children’s National in D.C., they have begun to see a rise in MISC-C. The hospital had two previous surges of the illness with up to nearly 60 patients. Now, they have had 18 MIS-C patients so far.

Similarly, at Children’s Hospital Colorado, they aren’t experiencing the same number MIS-C patients that they did in December 2020 and January 2021, but are nonetheless seeing a rise of their own.

The CDC has said that there have been 5,217 cases of MIS-C that have been reported through Oct. 4. Tragically 46 children have succumbed to the disease, marking a 12% increase in deaths from the month prior.

Children, who also show extremely low rates of deaths and hospitalizations if they have COVID-19, have a less than one percent chance of picking up MIS-C.

Health experts are still unsure about the cases behind MIS-C. However, the CDC advises that parents should be keen on picking up symptoms including ever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes or extra fatigue, and should call their doctor immediately if they notice any of these symptoms.

The Pitch Perfect star's  rep confirmed to ET that DeVine exchanged vows with his longtime girlfriend over the weekend. The ceremony was held in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to Page Six.

DeVine's former Workaholics costar Erik Griffin shared a snapshot of DeVine and his longtime comedy partners -- Blake Anderson and Anders Holm -- all celebrating together in Cabo.

"Dem Boyz! Devine is off the market! Such an awesome wedding!" Griffin captioned the pic.

Nearly a week before the ceremony, Bridges took to Instagram to share an update about their wedding plans and the multiple pandemic-related setbacks that popped up since they first got engaged nearly two years ago.

"Were we crazy for trying to plan a wedding during a global pandemic?? Probably, yeah, cause many, many things went wrong including but not limited to us both getting breakthrough covid 😐 But we gave it our best shot and it’s almost here and it seems like it’s actually going to pan out!!" she wrote, alongside a slideshow of photos of her in various white gowns.

"Consider this dump of the wedding dresses I almost-chose-but-didn’t to be your warning that this is going to be a very wedding-heavy account for the next two weeks 🙃" she added.

The cute couple -- who started dating in February 2015, after meeting on the set of The Final Girls the year prior -- announced their engagement in October 2019.

"She said yes! Well actually she said 'ahh Adam' and then kissed me but I’m pretty sure that means YES!" Devine captioned a post announcing the news. "I love Chloe more than anything and I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with her amazing self."
