Since the start of the year, 16 kids have been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency. Researchers at the UC San Diego School of Medicine told the agency that twice as many children have been diagnosed compared with previous years.
Officials said that all seven people were adults who were detained during the time they became sick. "Since these individuals were isolated inside the facility during the period they were infectious, we do not anticipate these cases posing a threat to the community," said Dr. David Persse, Houston's local health authority and EMS medical director."
