Important Information: Paediatric colleagues across the country have raised concerns that the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) emergency could be causing children more harm. More children present with sepis than COVID but as the symptoms of sepsis (a life-threatening reaction to an infection and also referred to as blood poisoning) can be very vague, hard to spot (especially in babies and young children) and be very similar to other conditions such as COVID, they are being managed as such.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have developed an important traffic light system to help parents make the right decisions for their children.
