The CDC is set to send an alert about pediatric multi-system Inflammatory syndrome, a rare illness that strikes children and is believed to be linked to the coronavirus. NBC News medical correspondent Dr. John Torres says “kids are definitely not safe from coronavirus, but they seem to have a little bit of protection because of their age and their immune system.” He says parents must realize that kids “do need to be protected.”
