RS virus employs children's clinics in Baden-Württemberg

The RS virus is particularly bad this year. Because of the corona lockdowns, many children were unable to build up an immune system.

Ludwigsburg – More and more small children and infants are being admitted to the children's clinic in Ludwigsburg. But it is not the coronavirus that worries the little ones, but the so-called RS virus (human respiratory syncytial virus). The respiratory disease is highly contagious, sometimes even after weeks. The virus is transmitted through droplet infection or through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects. The RS virus infection occurs most often in the first two years of life. After massive outbreaks in several daycare centers in the Baden-Württemberg district of Ludwigsburg, the clinics are now sounding the alarm.

BW24 * knows everything about the dramatic situation in the children's clinics in Baden-Württemberg.

There is no vaccination protection against the virus. Only RSV prophylaxis is used for high-risk patients, such as premature babies or children with previous illnesses. According to experts, there will be a particularly high number of infections this year, as children have hardly had any contact with pathogens due to lockdowns and the closing of kindergartens. As a result, many children were unable to build up an immune system. * BW24 is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
