News Report from this Media Briefing

Event Overview

A new study estimates that 1 in 50 deaths of otherwise healthy children under age 5 around the world is due to a common virus that’s currently surging in the US: respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV. Pediatric intensive care units around the US are overflowing or at capacity with children experiencing RSV.

Speakers this week will discuss the causes related to the surge of cases; how parents can distinguish between RSV, a cold, and Covid-19 in their young children, preventive measures – especially vaccines and boosters – and therapeutics and treatment.
