Mom warns parents after 5-year-old contracts rare inflammatory syndrome from COVID-19

A mom in Texas is speaking out after her 5-year-old daughter was placed on a ventilator in the intensive care unit after contracting a potentially life-threatening, COVID-related disease that affects kids. Tara Copeland’s daughter, Peyton, 5, was diagnosed with multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C, in late December, around one month after Copeland and her husband both tested positive for COVID-19 and the couple’s five children, including Peyton, also showed symptoms of the virus. Weeks after the seven members of the Copeland family had all recovered from COVID-19, Peyton woke up on Christmas morning with a low-grade fever and a headache.
