RS virus (respiratory syncytial virus) is a respiratory virus that normally occurs in adults and children in winter, most often between November and March. The virus causes cold symptoms among most people with a cough, stuffy and / or runny nose and sometimes a fever. 60-70 per cent of all children have an RS infection in their first year of life. However, for some young children, especially those under 2 years of age, after a few days an RS infection can enter the lungs and cause bronchiolitis.
