NYC Boy Gets Coronavirus, Then Ends Up on a Ventilator With Possible Kawasaki Disease | NBC New York
A Queens family is sharing their story of nearly losing their young son to a virus that they believed was not supposed to target children. Now they’re warning other parents. NBC New York’s Melissa Russo reports.
New York City’s Department of Health issued an alert Monday night, saying that 15 additional cases of multi-system inflammatory syndrome have been identified in children.
