Screen infant: A screening test particularly to verify that your family is also infected is indicated. Symptoms may range from mild to severe, and please watch for difficulty breathing, cough, fever and shortness of breath. If these occur, a chest radiograph and close follow up is indicated. Monitor your temperature, drink fluids and rest.
