A 6-month-old baby was hospitalized in the Safra Children’s Hospital in the Sheba Medical Center in critical condition on Wednesday after developing pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS) after recovering from COVID.

The baby was transferred from Yoseftal Medical Center in Eilat after her condition deteriorated and was attached to an ECMO machine after arriving at Sheba.

“The case in question is a painful reminder of the harm that COVID can cause,” said Dr. Itai Pesach, director of Safra Children’s Hospital. “It’s very important that we vaccinate to protect ourselves and those who can’t get vaccinated.”

Israel is currently experiencing a peak in the number of COVID patients attached to ECMO machines, 90% of whom are not vaccinated.

In recent weeks, there has been a wave of children hospitalized across Israel with PIMS after recovering from COVID.

  1. Look it up on the official israeli news

    A 29 year old is on a ecmo because of Myocarditis after he got a booster shot

    I wish YWN would report that side of the story as well

  2. Why don’t we have news stories of every child and every adult who died of the flu? Or everyone who died after taking the covid shot or those who developed severe illness after getting the shot? Because they are selling the covid vaccine to the masses.
