They found an “unusual increase” in viral respiratory illnesses in boys and girls

In the first half of the year, an “unusual” increase in viral respiratory diseases in childhood was confirmed, according to a study conducted by the Italian hospital with patients from the city of Buenos Aires, the north and south of Buenos Aires and the city of San Justo. This is due to ” the high circulation of several viruses at the same time and the lack of antibodies in boys and girls to these agents due to the isolation due to the pandemic,” according to the specialists.

The work carried out by the Italian hospital specified that from January 1 to June 30, 94.3 percent of 456 samples analyzed for respiratory techniques from 406 patients under the age of 18 were positive for some virus.

The patients included in the study belong to Hospital Italiano, headquarters of the city of Buenos Aires and San Justo. “The most frequently isolated virus was rhinovirus, at 44.1 percent,” the study states.
