RSV cases in children on the rise: Symptoms to look out for


Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a cause of respiratory sickness in children.

The RSV is an airborne disease and is very contagious.

The virus causes a common cold and sometimes infects the lungs and breathing passages.

This can eventually lead to breathing issues in kids and infants.

Look out for symptoms like sore throat, cough, mild headache and loss of appetite.

Infections can lead to pneumonia or bronchitis in premature babies and kids below a year old.

Kids with lung, heart, or asthma issues will be affected easily.

Call your doctor if you have high fever, wheezing, fast breathing, or dehydration.
