A rare condition in children that doctors say stems from COVID-19 is now showing up in Wichita as doctors diagnosed a 12-year-old girl with a multisystem inflammatory syndrome, also known as MIS-C.
According to the CDC, only a little more than 1,000 children have been diagnosed with the condition in the United States. Less than 10 of those cases have been in Kansas.
"I was beginning to think, 'Oh my god, oh my god, I’m going to lose my daughter,'" Jessica Rains said, referring to her daughter, Adalyn.
Last week, doctors told Rains that her daughter has MIS-C.
