What is RSV and why is it so bad this season? I discuss this and a promising new vaccine candidate.
RSV, and a few of it's buddies, are back with a vengeance this year and hitting young children earlier and harder than during typical respiratory virus seasons.
After a pandemic related lull, pediatric respiratory infections are roaring back. Unfortunately, this means that there will likely be a spike in cases of a polio-like illness caused by enterovirus D68.
Doctors who claimed that COVID-19 was essentially harmless to children are now being confronted with the sad fact that it is sometimes quite dangerous to them. How they respond reveals much about them and little about the virus.
