BC health officials are reporting the province's first cases of a rare condition in children that's been temporally linked to COVID-19.
Those with a lower respiratory tract infection were positive for an average of 19.9 days.

"This highlights the concept that infected children may be more likely to go unnoticed either with or without symptoms and continue on with their usual activities, which may contribute to viral circulation within their community". "Just because kids come back from school feeling great, doesn't mean they aren't going to spread the virus".
Professor Calum Semple, Professor in Child Health and Outbreak Medicine and Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician at the University of Liverpool, said: "The diligent work of our colleagues working in Child Health and the NIHR Clinical Research Network across the United Kingdom has led to this report which is the largest and most detailed description of covid-19 and MIS-C in children and young people".
