That doesn't answer the seeming increase in hospitalizations.

The weakened immune systems is the theory, no?

That would be the nursing mother's theory they mentioned, which could be. But I'm sure is far from proven.

The other part was why older siblings are spreading it more but that doesn't answer why it would be more severe.

Assuming we are talking about this part:

“Nursing mothers, who would [typically] protect their children through passive immunity, aren’t able to give that robust immunity to their children this year because the mothers were not exposed to these viral illnesses last year as they usually are,” the doctor said.

“Also, a lot of the toddlers who get mild illness skipped the typical RSV season last year, have no immunity to RSV, and thus pass it to their siblings or neighbors.”

This thread has been quiet. Hoping that means this is winding down?

Unfortunately, I don't think so. My neighbors' son just had it a couple of days ago.

I think Hatzalah came to learn more about it and therefor aren't sending so many people to the hospital as they used to.

If oxygen levels are fine they won't send into hospital even if the infant is breathing very rapidly. They used to panic more on this one.

As far as treatment, making sure to keep the airways open is key, as infants can't unclog by themselves. Constantly flushing nose with saline, suctioning with this nasal aspirator, keep baby in upright position, and on a saline nebulizer as much as possible.

The schools in these neighborhoods had a regular winter season.
People were more careful about keeping children home when they had a fever or a cold

I wonder if it’s more cases this or just happening later in the year. Last year before covid my baby was in Maimonides for rsv and the place was packed with kids with Rsv. My wife was in emergency room for a few days till they moved them upstairs.
