Although most reports showed children with COVID-19 recovered quicker or had mild to no symptoms, new findings are showing that some may have a multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) that can lead to life-threatening problems with the heart and other organs in the body. On the other hand, we also have to learn more about how to properly detect, treat and manage COVID-19 in children, to distinguish this from other infectious diseases, and to protect children with other types of diseases, like cancer or rheumatoid arthritis, who are more at risk as the number of confirmed cases in the country surpassed 30,000 this week.

COVID-19 and Children: The Experience of Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC), Davao”, our 10th webinar in this series, will be held on June 26, Friday, 12nn. SPMC Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist Ma. Delta S. Aguilar will discuss with us how to protect and care for children during the pandemic.

The UP webinar series, “STOP COVID DEATHS: Clinical Management Updates,” is hosted by the University of the Philippines, in partnership with the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) and the UP Manila National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Telehealth Center, every Friday from 12nn to 2pm.
