A new study is shedding light on COVID-19's impact on children.

The New York State Department of Health led a study on multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children associated with the coronavirus. Experts at UAlbany also helped in this study.


NewsChannel 13 has been reporting on the inflammatory illness, described as a-typical Kawasaki disease.  

The study looked at 99 cases. It concludes the emergence of the condition in the state followed widespread coronavirus transmission and is often associated with cardiac dysfunction.
