The 20-year-old Boulder County resident was found to have fully recovered from the coronavirus. Three weeks later, the resident developed multisystem inflammatory syndrome.
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome is a newly identified condition that occurs primarily in children and has symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease, a news release from Boulder County Public Health States said.
In Boulder County on Friday, 4,998 cases of coronavirus were reported in Boulder County. Of those, 2,873 positive or potential cases were reported among the 18- to 28-year-old population, public health spokeswoman Chana Goussetti said Friday.
University of Colorado Boulder’s coronavirus dashboard shows. As of Aug. 24, 1,114 campus tests have returned positive by Friday. A coronavirus outbreak has occurred at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment CU Boulder and figures updated Wednesday show that 16 staff members and 1,527 students tested positive for the virus, and 168 students are considered potential.
To date, 227 have been hospitalized in Boulder County. There have been 84 deaths – 1 of them connected to long-term care facilities, county data show.
In the 18- to 28-year age range, 15 people have been hospitalized and no one has died, Gossetis said.
Nevertheless, the infectious disease Dr. Heather Pujet said she hopes residents understand the virus and that it could be a serious complication for young people.
Pujet said in the release that he would warn young people in the community not to ignore their personal risks with COVID-19. “The involvement of the multiorgan system made the patient very ill. He fortunately recovered after a period of serious illness. ”
The 20-year-old resident had mild symptoms of coronavirus. He later developed severe abdominal pain, watery diarrhea and fever, Prakash said. The man was hospitalized and needed intensive care.
Conditions improved, and the resident was eventually discharged from the hospital, the publication says.
Health officials say the best way to prevent multisystem inflammatory syndrome is to protect against the same COVID-19.

Multisystem inflammatory disease can cause inflammation of different parts of the body, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes or gastrointestinal organs, the release states. Common symptoms include fever, severe abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, red eyes, red lips, shortness of breath and confusion.
“There is a lot of unknown about how (multisystem inflammatory syndrome) develops, but it has to do with the body’s efforts to fight off an invader,” pediatric infectious disease specialist Sam Dominguez said in the release. “It is very important to seek immediate medical attention if a parent notices any of these symptoms.”
Anyone experiencing symptoms of coronavirus or multisystem inflammatory syndrome is advised to contact their healthcare provider for guidance on testing and treatment.
