SV or Respiratory Syntactical Virus is especially dangerous to Infants and the Elderly
Right now the best way to prevent RSV infections is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, regularly disinfect surfaces that may have the virus, and not close talk or rub noses with someone who has an RSV infection. Don’t share spoons with someone who may have RSV. Provide tissues to people who are sick with RSV so that they can cover their mouths and noses when they sneeze or cough.
A person with RSV tends to remain contagious for 3 to 8 days, although in some cases this can extend up to 4 weeks. You can catch the virus by breathing in respiratory droplets coughed or sneezed out by an infectious person. An infectious person can also leave viruses on anything that touches his or her nose. The virus then could potentially survive for hours on various objects and surfaces. Therefore, don’t touch your face, clean your hands often, and be careful in places that may have the virus spread around, like day-care centers. Remember, wherever there’s lots of little kids, it’s “snot “clean.
