Pediatrician Pedro J. Navarro, President College of Physicians of Malagawarned of Increase in respiratory infections in children, Some of the paintings which were traditionally made in winter and which Kovid has made them in summer as well.

These are respiratory infections that are usually not very serious. According to the doctor, Most have a cold, sore throat, or tonsillitis, although sometimes a more dangerous situation can also occur. Symptoms are similar to those of most respiratory conditions: runny nose, sore throat and headache, fever, cough, swollen glands in the neck, fatigue and some loss of appetite while eating with general malaise.

Although most symptoms are caused by adenoviruses that develop favorably over a few days with anti-inflammatory treatment, Navarro stresses that having: with special care children under 2 years oldwho may suffer respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)which causes bronchiolitis. According to Navarro, “most bronchiolitis can be afflicted as a cold, but children under the age of 2 sometimes have conditions that can lead to respiratory failure and require hospitalization, So you have to be more careful in the winter of young children”.

In this sense, pediatricians emphasize that Babies born during pandemic have more immature immune systems Compared to the rest, especially because of the preventive measures for COVID, such as masks, isolation and safety distance, which have made them “very few viral infections”.
