As per reports, a new post-coronavirus complication has been detected in adults called the multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), that was earlier seen in kids.

In this syndrome, organs and tissues, including heart, liver, kidneys, blood vessels etc. can become hyper inflamed. Patients suffering from this syndrome may not even test positive for the coronavirus but can show antibodies for COVID-19 insinuating that the individual has been exposed to the coronavirus in the past. Moreover, a 52-year-old woman being treated at Andheri's Kokilaben Hospital is likely to be the first case of this syndrome.

Earlier, in a surprising turn of events, Mumbai had reported symptoms that are found to be similar to the Kawasaki disease amongst the young patients who have been infected with the coronavirus. In the past, similar symptoms were noticed in young children in the West but in a first, these are being reported in India.

Across the globe, doctors, researchers and scientists are continuously working around the clock to investigate the ways the coronavirus is affecting the human body. So far, we know that the more critical a case is, the longer the duration of the illness. For severe cases that need hospitalisation, the average amount of time spent undergoing hospital treatment is between seven and 14 days. However, for those who become critically ill, needing to go on a ventilator or into intensive care, this number may increase to between 30 and 40 days.
