This virtual meeting followed after the US Michigan state provided an update of the coronavirus as Covid-19 cases continue to spike.
Dr Yagiela takes care of the sickest children in her hospital's paediatric intensive care unit and during this meeting she shared her experiences as a healthcare worker caring for children.
She says that most children who contracted Covid-19 had a mild illness that can be cared for at home. But the small portion that got extremely sick developed severe and life-threatening illnesses due to Covid-19 and further required admission to the hospital.
She says that there are three illnesses developed due to Covid-19:
2. Myocarditis or heart inflammation
3. Inflammatory Multisystem syndrome
Dr Yagiela says that some of the children who had diabetes became uncontrollably diabetic after the Covid-19 infection, leading to them developing a dangerous condition called diabetic ketoacidosis.
She says that other previously healthy young children developed a severe lower respiratory tract infection and have also seen children develop severe asthma exacerbations after a Covid-19 infection.
Most children they cared for with severe and life-threatening illnesses due to Covid-19 were hospitalised from a few days to up to one to two months.
