Three children in ny have died because of the conditions, Governor Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. Kawasaki disease is a mysterious illness that primarily affects children up to the age of five.

He said data on deaths and hospitalizations was "definitely trending in the right direction" but needed to fall further before Big Apple residents could get back to work. Most of the time, by the time the child has a Kawasaki syndrome, the virus is gone.

"But it's something we have to consider seriously now".

Michael Gewitz, Physician-in-Chief of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, where the boy passed away, said the child suffered "serious neurological complications" from the pediatric multi-symptom inflammatory syndrome.

The syndrome triggers an "intensive, nearly overwhelming" response from the child's immune system that causes problems for the body, de Blasio says.

While no link has been formally established to the new coronavirus, scientists believe it could be connected.

If a nursing home is deemed unable to provide proper treatment and support for a recovering resident, that person is to be transferred to the care of the state, which Cuomo said now has ample hospital bed capacity for such patients.

Oil prices rise amid hopes for fuel demand
USA oil futures were up 75 cents, or 3.2 percent, at $24.30 a barrel, after declining almost 2 percent the previous day. Oil prices were supported by data showing Chinese crude imports rose last month.


Andrew Cuomo is warning of disturbing signs that that may not be entirely true.

Symptoms include a fever, rash, stomach pain and vomiting, de Blasio said in the news conference.

As of Sunday, 178,766 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in New York City since the outbreak began and 14,753 people have died.

The White House has started informal talks with Republicans and Democrats in Congress about next steps on CCP virus relief legislation, officials said on Sunday, but they stressed any new federal money would come with conditions.

When it comes to prevention, said Barbot, "the most important thing is for families to remain indoors as much as possible". It is now extended until August 20. Visits from family members are also banned unless someone is dying.

De Blasio's new approach appears to stand in contrast to the hardline stance he'd previously taken in relying mainly on his police department to enforce city guidelines. It said five of the 15 needed a mechanical ventilator and a lot of them "required blood pressure support". The human body produces antibodies days or weeks after fighting an infection.

Starting this week, all nursing home staff must be tested twice a week, Cuomo said during his daily briefing in Albany.

The city has been partnering with NYC Health + Hospitals (NYCHHC) and diagnostics company BioReference Laboratories for antibody testing launched in early May .

Paediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome doesn't show the hallmarks of coronavirus in the children who have been diagnosed, Gov. Cuomo said. She said prognosis for the syndrome is good.

"We were afraid of what was going to happen".

"A couple of these kids tested did test positive for the virus itself".
