Covid-19 is a new virus. The infection not only affects the respiratory system, but there also seems to be a thromboembolic risk. According to the latest news, a correlation has also been found between the virus and Kawasaki syndrome, a childhood disease that causes inflammation of the blood vessel walls in children's bodies. We talked about it with Dr. Gennaro Giustino, specialist in internal medicine and cardiology at Mount Sanai Hospital in New York, the city where the highest number of infections in the world has been recorded based on population density.
Dr. Gennaro Giustino is a member of the Network Italian Healthcare World, the first platform dedicated to Italian doctors and health professionals residing abroad. Their profiles can be consulted in our very useful WebApp.
