With the coronavirus still occupying most of their time and attention, doctors in the Sunshine State are dealing with another challenge – a COVID-19-related illness that attacks children and teens.The disease, in which several body parts such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, gastrointestinal tract, skin or eyes can become inflamed, has infected children and young adults under the age of 21. New York City has reported that 147 children have the condition.Known as MIS-C, the illness has made its way to Florida with seven confirmed cases, and medical professionals expect to see more.The condition, although rare, often appears quickly, requires hospitalization, and could become life-threatening if it affects the heart or kidneys.Officials at six of Florida children’s hospitals say they have admitted and are monitoring children with suspected MIS-C cases.“Only a small number of children experience MIS-C, but it can be serious and require a lot of support system,” explains Dr. Balagangadhar Totapally, chief of the division of critical care medicine at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami.The most common symptoms are persistent fever and abdominal pain and sometimes a rash or pink eye. Previous exposure to COVID-19 appears to be the main risk for becoming infected with the new illness.Most young people with MIS-C have antibodies against the coronavirus, instead of actually having been infected.Doctors believe that factor suggests that the syndrome could be the result of a delayed immune response that appears about four weeks after being exposed to the coronavirus.“MIS-C presents a few weeks after the peak of infection in a community, so that’s right about now,” Totapally adds.Nicklaus Children’s Hospital is creating a specialized unit for the treatment of children with MIS-C. It will include a four-room pod as part of the hospital’s 40-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.Totapally’s hospital reported its first case about 10 days ago. He believes Florida may have more cases of the children’s illness than what the state numbers reflect. Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week created guidance to diagnose MIS-C, “borderline cases may not show up in the numbers,” Totapally says.Looking to make a splash this summer? Dive into these CDC tips for enjoying the pool & preventing #COVID19. Practice social distancing, wear a face covering when out of water, except for children 2 & under, and limit sharing of pool toys. Remember to stay home if you are sick. pic.twitter.com/uQCjDppQmo— CDC (@CDCgov) May 22, 2020 At least 12 children in South Florida are being monitored for the illness.In young children, symptoms of the MIS-C usually resemble those of Kawasaki disease, which is a rare and milder inflammatory illness. However, teens and young adults seem to have a more inflammatory response to MIS-C. Researchers now believe that some children who were originally diagnosed with Kawasaki disease in the U.S. between January and May of this year may actually have had MIS-C instead.At Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, a section within the COVID-19 unit has been created for children who are thought to have MIS-C. “There is an area now where we do have children undergoing testing to rule out as to whether they have MIS-C. If they all came in presenting the same way, life would be easier for everyone involved,” says Dr. Laura D’Addese, a pediatric cardiologist.She adds, “The biggest concern we have right now, especially in kids, is largely stemming from inflammation around the heart,” D’Addese said. In South Florida, children’s hospitals are sharing research and experiences.According to Dr. Paul Robinson, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics Florida Chapter, the state’s pediatricians are on alert. “About 99 percent of the time the children have fevers and they look sick. It should be easy for a doctor,” he says. “If they have seen Kawasaki, they should be comfortable finding this and telling the patient to go to the hospital.Although there is no cure for MIS-C at this time, local doctors say their patients respond to treatment fairly quickly. Dr. Totapally, at Nicklaus in Miami, says children improve “usually within days.”As of this week, more than 20 states around the country have reported cases of MIS-C. At least four children, including three in New York and a 15-year-old girl in Maryland, have died of apparent MIS-C in recent weeks.UPDATED: Local Children Diagnosed with Illness Possibly Linked to COVID-19

New Delhi: Dipa Karmakar gave India fans plenty to cheer as she secured the bronze medal in the vault event of the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup event in Cottbus, Germany. Karmakar scored 14.316 to secure the bronze in the tournament, which is also a part of the eight-event qualifying system for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. However, in the balance beam event, the Tripura athlete did not finish well. The Cottbus meet is part of an eight-event qualifying system for the 2020 Olympics, under which the gymnasts will make the cut based on the their top three scores. Speaking on Karmakar’s achievement, Gymnastics Federation of India vice-president Riyaz Ahmed Bhati said the Olympics qualification goal has come nearer.Read More |Hockey World Cup 2018: India seek repeat of 1975 glory“Karmakar has done well in the first tournament. She will be travelling to two more events out of Australia, Doha and Baku. But this event was the toughest,” Bhati said.Read More |Hero I-League wins silver at SPIA awardsThe 25-year-old has been plagued by a knee injury which she sustained in the Asian Artistic Gymnastics in Bangkok, Thailand. Karmakar underwent corrective surgery on her anterior cruciate ligament in April and was unable to participate throughout the season. Karmakar missed out on the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Although she had regained fitness, her coach Bisweshwar Nandi said her lengthy rehabilitation process resulted in her restricted training. Nandi said she was not yet ready fitness wise for the tournament.However, Karmakar created history in July 2018 as she won the gold medal in the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup at Mersin, Turkey. Karmakar became the first Indian gymnast to win the gold medal in a world event. In the same competition, she reached the finals of the balance beam event where she finished a credible fourth.Karmakar was in confident mood heading into the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta but in one of the practice sessions ahead of women’s qualification for team and apparatus finals, she hurt her right knee and she was forced to pull out of the final.
After a tough stretch of seven consecutive losses, the women’s basketball team may be turning its season around with back-to-back victories against Arizona and Arizona State over the weekend. While the Trojans struggled to find a rhythm on Friday night against Arizona, they fought throughout the game, ultimately earning USC its first wins since 2016.“You know what, we won,” head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke said after her team’s first game against Arizona. “I didn’t think we played a great game. One of the things we talked about in pregame was grinding. We needed to grind out a win — do whatever it took to come away with a victory — and I thought we did that.”With the career-high performances from freshman forward Ja’Tavia Tapley and senior center Ivana Jakubcova, the team was able to clinch the much-needed victory over the Wildcats. Standing at6-foot-3 and 6-foot-6 respectively, the two were able to use their length and solid form under the basket to combine for 26 points and 18 rebounds.“It was very important,” Tapley said. “With boxing out and the height advantage, we just put two and two together and just made it happen on the boards.”Having players like Tapley and Jakubcova come through for the Trojans was even more important given the loss of yet another player due to injury this season. Sophomore guard Aliyah Mazyck had previously missed five games with a stress fracture in her foot but was able to come back for both games against UCLA last week. Those games exacerbated her injury, and there is now no timetable for her return to the court.“We were trying to work through it,” Cooper-Dyke said. “But it was clear after the UCLA game that she couldn’t play anymore. Not only did she reaggravate it, but it is also more swollen, more painful. So we had to almost restart her rehab.”The Trojans did not let Mazyck’s injury keep them from competing against Arizona State on Sunday. USC and ASU had the number one and two 3-point range defenses in the conference respectively going into the afternoon, meaning the game was played mostly from the inside. The Trojans shut the Sun Devils down from that range, holding Arizona State to 0-5 from beyond the arc in the first three quarters — much to the delight of Cooper-Dyke.“What a great defensive game by my Women of Troy,” she said. “This team came out from the beginning and established ourselves defensively, and we did not let up off that pedal. It allowed us to get out on the fast break and get some buckets that we needed to keep our engine going.”In the first half, neither team was able to pull ahead, and it was 26-25 at the break, with ASU barely holding on to its one-point lead. After the half, the Trojans were plagued with unforced turnovers, and the Sun Devils finally managed to surge ahead. By the end of the third quarter, however, the Trojans had come alive, igniting the fans in Galen Center with their play. A four-point play by freshman guard Minyon Moore started a USC scoring run, and ASU would never recover.“When we turned over the ball it was demoralizing,” junior guard Sadie Edwards said, “[but] we didn’t put our heads down. Our coach called a timeout, and we said, ‘Let’s get this right, and let’s fix this.’ We did, and we made plays and played together.”The Trojans will now look to build a winning streak as they head onto the road for the next four games. Their newfound spirit could be just what the team needs to turn its season around.
Former Syracuse redshirt freshman Matthew Moyer will transfer to Vanderbilt, he announced on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. Moyer started the first 20 games last season for the Orange, losing his job after suffering a high-ankle sprain on Jan. 24 against Boston College. He played in 15 more games but never started.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe forward announced his intent to transfer on March 26, shortly after SU’s season-ending loss to Duke in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Moyer finished the year averaging 16.8 minutes, 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.In Moyer’s first year at SU, he injured himself during the 2016-17 preseason, deciding to redshirt. He struggled in his only season playing with the Orange and was often chastised by head coach Jim Boeheim.At then-No. 23 Florida State in January, Moyer said Boeheim “got into me” during halftime. Moyer said that was not uncommon, especially if he had made a few mistakes early in the game.“Obviously coach Boeheim can be tough sometimes,” Moyer told The Daily Orange before SU’s Sweet 16 matchup with Duke a month ago.Moyer is the fourth player to leave the SU program in the past academic year, joining Taurean Thompson, graduate student Geno Thorpe and walk-on-turned-scholarship player Braedon Bayer.
