Can adults get RSV from an infected infant or would they just get pneumonia?

Yes: Rsv actually doesn't invade the blood during infections and never triggers the quality of immune response you would get if it did. Children and adults will commonly acquire RSV every other year on average throughout life with symptoms of decreasing intensity as they age.

Interstitial pneumonitis is commonly associated with viral illnesses, but there are other causes. TB test all household members. ...Read more
