I read a story in a Rochester (NY) local news site, but in their national news section. About a seven-year-old Utah girl who was infected with Covid-19 (unbeknownst to her family because she was asymptomatic), and then probably as a result developed Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children, or MIS-C. According to the Center for Disease Control, "Many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19." The girl became critically ill and had to be hospitalized in a Utah ICU for several days. She recovered but suffered swelling of her heart. Doctors are not sure how this will play out but for now the girl is restricted from any physical activity. Meanwhile her father, Andrew Maurer, told an interviewer:
Quote:
ďI used to be on the whole page of masks donít do anything, this is just the flu. Kids donít get sick from COVID,Ē said Andrew. ďAnd I gotta tell ya ó Iíve been completely humbled,Ē he added. Link to article on Rochester First dot com
Masks don't do anything, this is just the flu, kids don't get sick from Covid. It's hard to feel real sympathy for someone so arrogantly stupid.
