As cases of so-called “children's gangsters” have increased in many countries around the world and anxiety has increased, the authorities have decided to start monitoring the disease starting next week.

The disease, called pediatric multi-organ inflammation syndrome, was first reported in Europe last month and spread to 13 countries on the 23rd.

In the U.S., there were 17 cases of child eccentricity until last week, but in less than a week, it increased to 25, and patients in their 20s.

Kwakjin Central Defense Response Headquarters (Bangdaebon) patient management team headed at the regular briefing held at the Osong Disease Control Headquarters in Chungcheongbuk-do on the 23rd. "We are receiving expert advice to apply definitions, investigation methods, etc. in Korea," he said. "When the consultation is completed, we will confirm the domestic monitoring method and investigation method so that we can start monitoring and investigation next week."

Kwon Joon-wook, vice-president of Daedae-bon, explained, "Even now, all domestic adolescents and specialists are expected to contact the authorities as soon as they suspect any of these syndromes."

The disease causes symptoms such as high fever, rash, and eye redness, and in severe cases, death occurs. The exact cause has not been determined.

Some estimates suggest that this disease is related to coronavirus infection-19 (corona19).

A 14-year-old boy who died in the United Kingdom on the 13th and died in France on the 15th with symptoms of the disease was tested for 'positive' by the Corona19 test.

However, the link between syndrome and corona19 has not been confirmed.

This disease is not accompanied by symptoms such as lung disease or dyspnea, and in some patients, the Corona19 test did not show a positive response.

However, as cases of pediatric multi-organ inflammatory syndromes continued, the World Health Organization (WHO) asked world health workers to be alert for the disease on the 15th of local time.

So far, there have been no cases of inflammatory syndrome in children in Korea.
