  • An outbreak of severe Kawasaki-like disease at the Italian epicentre of the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic: an observational cohort study
    In the past month a 30-fold increased incidence of Kawasaki-like disease was observed in the Bergamo province of Italy. Children diagnosed after the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic began showed evidence of immune response to the virus, were older, had a higher rate of cardiac involvement, and features of MAS. The SARS-CoV-2 epidemic was associated with high incidence of a severe form of Kawasaki disease. A similar outbreak of Kawasaki-like disease is expected in countries involved in the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. 
  • Preventing a Parallel Pandemic — A National Strategy to Protect Clinicians’ Well-Being
    Just as the US rallied to care for September 11 first responders who suffered long-term health effects, authors argue we must take responsibility for the well-being of clinician first responders to Covid-19 — now and in the long run. Authors are calling for several immediate actions to lay the groundwork for a clear and accountable national strategy to safeguard the health and well-being of our clinician workforce.
