Mysterious inflammatory syndrome tied to COVID-19 strikes adults as well as kids

Months after the discovery of a “multisystem inflammatory syndrome” tied to COVID-19 in children, health officials are warning that a similar condition can strike adults as well.

On Friday (Oct. 2), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report describing a “multisystem inflammatory syndrome in adults” or (MIS-A). Like the syndrome in children, MIS-A is a severe illness that targets multiple organs and causes increased inflammation in the body, the report said. And with both syndromes, many patients either test positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, or have antibodies against it, indicating a recent infection.
