October 27, 2022

Health officials warn of an early surge in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) cases nationwide. RSV is a common respiratory virus that causes mild, cold-like symptoms, but can lead to health complications in infants and older adults. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia in children younger than 1 in the United States. Sean O’Donnell, Montgomery County’s public health emergency preparedness manager, said at a media briefing on Monday that local hospitals are seeing a rise in RSV hospitalizations.
