Doctors in the United States, Britain, Switzerland and Japan have announced that children around the world have become infected with an unknown respiratory syncytial virus that infects the respiratory tract, the national portal Adyrna reported, citing the BBC News.
According to Rabia Aga, head of the pediatric infectious diseases department at a New York hospital in the United States, the outbreak of the new virus in infants and children began in April, which immediately filled the intensive care unit.
According to scientists, the coronavirus pandemic has contributed to the spread of RSV, and due to quarantine measures, children do not develop immunity to the virus. The outbreak occurred after weakening of coronavirus insurance measures.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is as common in most children as coughs and colds. But in some cases, it can lead to bronchitis, inflammation of the lower part of the lungs.
Earlier, experts from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the number of children hospitalized with COVID-19 had risen sharply since the "delta" version of the coronavirus predominated. However, new research shows that the fear that the new strain is dangerous and causes a serious form of the disease is unfounded.
