The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shares data on Health Department-Reported Cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) in the United States.
The first reported case of MIS-C in a Wisconsin resident was in 2020. Find more information about Wisconsin's MIS-C cases and case demographics below. Data comes from the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS). It will be updated every weekday at 2 p.m.
Health Equity and MIS-C
Systemic racism, barriers to quality health care, housing, transportation, and job opportunities, have contributed to Black, Brown, Indigenous, and other communities of color being disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Nationwide, more than 60 percent of reported MIS-C cases have occurred in children who are Hispanic or Latino or Non-Hispanic Black. In Wisconsin, more than 50 percent of MIS-C cases occur in racial and ethnic minority groups, despite communities of color representing less than 20 percent of the state population.
MIS-C is one of the ways that COVID-19 continues to affect our communities and we must all do our part to stop the spread. Learn more about the unequal and unjust impact of COVID-19.
