What is RSV?

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common virus that causes cold-like symptoms. Almost all children are infected by RSV within their first two years of age. Most of the time, the RSV virus causes only minor cold-like symptoms. Children usually recover from the illness in 8 to 15 days.

However, in certain children predisposed to RSV, it can lead to serious complications such as lower respiratory tract infection, bronchiolitis, or pneumonia.
