100,000 deaths with RS virus – in one year

33 million young children were infected with respiratory infections caused by the RS virus in 2019. Half of all children who died were under six months and the majority of all deaths occurred in low- and middle-income countries.

In the past year, Sweden has had an unusually difficult RS season. The epidemic started unusually early and hit extra hard, partly because the coronary restrictions protected several cohorts of children from the RS virus and therefore immunity was low.
