d. swollen lymph nodes
e. belly pain

Answer: c

Though the coronavirus doesn't infect as many children as adults, doctors are alarmed that a growing number of children are becoming sick with a condition called pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome, which may be related to the coronavirus.

Symptoms of pediatric multisystem inflammatory syndrome include a fever, rash, swollen lymph nodes, and belly pain, the Health Department said in its advisory.

A persistent cough and breathing troubles, two of the main symptoms of COVID-19, are not listed as symptoms of the condition.

The state Health Department said the condition has similarities to toxic shock syndrome and Kawasaki disease, a childhood illness.

Treatments include steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, aspirin, antibiotics, and oxygen, sometimes use of a ventilator in the most serious cases.
