The new symptoms were named by Svetlana Larionova, the deputy chief physician for the medical department of the regional children's hospital, and Aleksey Sigidaev, the acting director of the regional health department, Ura.ru reports. … This is joint pain, inflammation of the mucous membranes. The clinic is similar to gastroenteritis, when there is abdominal pain, loose stools, “Larionova said.
The Russian doctor emphasized that such symptoms indicate a severe course of the disease. At the same time, everything depends on the timeliness of treatment, the specialist said.
Larionova also recommended vaccinating children against influenza, because, according to studies, vaccinated children are easier to tolerate viral infections. In addition, due to the flu vaccine, minors are less likely to experience complications leading to pneumonia and bronchitis. This is due to the fact that vaccination helps the body to prepare immunity, the doctor explained.
According to the acting director of the Department of Health of the Kurgan region Sigidaev, in neighboring regions, minor patients with COVID-19 are on artificial lung ventilation devices (IVL ).
“You need to train your immune system to respond appropriately. In a child, the immune system can adequately respond in two ways – either the child is constantly ill, or it is vaccination, “he said.
