A seven-year-old boy identified as Logan Walsh is currently suffering from memory loss, after falling ill with Covid-19.
Logan is said to have recovered from coronavirus but is now struggling with a particularly strange side effect, which led to his loss of memory.
A specialist at Leeds General Infirmary, where Logan was treated, spotted the signs of PIMS-TS, or paediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome.
The condition can cause organ failure, insufficient blood flow, as well as other severe medical issues, meaning children need to be admitted to ICU.
Logan had to undergo steroid treatment and later developed a heart murmur that led to him being transferred to the Intensive Care ward.
Logan’s body began to swell as it attempted to heal itself and his blood became dangerously thin.
According to a report by Yorkshire live, the 7-year old now frequently forgets little things that his mum has to remind him of.
Logan’s mum, Jessica Walsh stated that,
“Now with his memory, he forgets some things which can be frustrating for him.
“He has no memory of the nine worst days when he was poorly, which we decided is probably a good thing. There was one particular day when I really thought we might lose him.
“But his memory in general is not brilliant as he remembered Christmas morning for a few days but has no recollection of it now”.
However, she added that Logan is doing really well, and is getting back to normal.
