South Dakota has recorded its first case of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), which may be tied to COVID-19 recoveries in younger people, the state epidemiologist reported in a COVID-19 media update Thursday.

Dr. Josh Clayton said the state’s first known case of MIS-C has been diagnosed in a patient under the age of 18. Clayton would only say the patient was from East River and that he could not provide the county of residence due to privacy issues.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, multisystem inflammatory syndrome “is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes or gastrointestinal organs.”

The website added, “We know that many children with MIS-C had the virus that causes COVID-19, or had been around someone with COVID-19. MIS-C can be serious, even deadly, but most children who were diagnosed with this condition have gotten better with medical care.”

Clayton told reporters Thursday, “The main symptoms relate to general systemic reactions of fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rash or an extreme feeling of being tired.”

He added that “there’s not a direct link (between COVID-19 and MIS-C) at this point.”

Nebraska has seen at least two cases of MIS-C.

In the local COVID-19 update, Clay County reported three new positive tests Thursday, bringing its case total to 79. Three new recoveries were recorded. The county currently has 17 active cases.

Yankton County reported one new positive test, its 71st. One new recovery was also reported. The county has 14 active cases.

Charles Mix County also reported one new positive test, giving it 57 known cases. One recovery was reported. The county currently has 33 positive cases; the number of people ever hospitalized remains at 22.
