Respiratory Virus Is Affecting Adults And Kids, Warn Doctors

Respiratory Virus Is Affecting Adults And Kids, Warn DoctorsThe CDC, which is the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, is warning the general public against a new respiratory infection that is causing some serious problems for the adults as well as kids in many regions all over the country. The spread of something like this is common in the winters and the parents are expected to take care of their kids in order to prevent them from getting sick because of these things, but this time, the CDC is warning the parents against this specific virus called RSV, which is the Respiratory Syncytial Virus.

As the temperature decreases, most parents have said that they find it quite difficult to keep their children germ-free in these changing times. But it is not just cough that the parents will have to worry about these days, it is something much worse. As per Doctor Mark Lockett, this virus which is causing problems for the people causes anything except the common cold. As per the man who works at the Coliseum Hospital, this RSV is causing a spectrum of quite a few diseases. The virus can cause respiratory failure, or something worse which can lead the patients to the ICU, and in some rare cases, the patients might even die, as per the doctor.

As per the statement given by the CDC, nearly all the children get the RSC by the time they reach the age of two years, but despite that, the parents should not worry at all till the time some symptoms are developed. These symptoms include some trouble while eating or drinking, or difficulty in sleeping, among some other symptoms. As of now, there is no particular vaccine that is available when it comes to treating this virus called RSV, and till the time there is one available, the parents are requested to keep an eye on their children.
