Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Respiratory Syncytial virus (RSV) is a common virus that causes mild, cold-like symptoms. It is spread through coughing and sneezing. Most children get RSV by the time they are two years old. In most cases, RSV is mild and recoverable.
However, in children with compromised immune systems, adults 65 years or older, and premature babies, RSV can cause severe lung infections, including pneumonia. Common symptoms include fever, chills, headache, general aching, tiredness, and a loss of appetite
