More kids getting respiratory illnesses this winter

Following a year of not having in-person learning, more kids are coming down with respiratory illnesses like RSV this winter.

“Since everybody was socially distanced and children weren’t going to school, there were very low rates of (respiratory illness) admissions in the past year. Now that people are more out and about, we’re seeing a lot of children getting viral respiratory infections,” said Dr. Dean Blumberg, the Pediatric Infectious Diseases chief at UC Davis Health.
