A dangerous rare disease associated with Covid-19 led Francisco Costa,13,to be admitted to an ICU of an hospital in Lisbon.At that time two hundred children around the world developed a pathology that had already caused deaths and symptoms similar to Kawasaki disease and Toxic Shock syndrome.From high fevers to kidney and respiratory failure,it was a small step.Days after admission,a serological test identified the presence of the new coronavirus.Francisco was now seriously fighting for his life.They were long days,sedated and intubated.He is already free from danger but not fully recovered.
