Respiratory Syncytial Virus is making its rounds right now, and some are worried because it’s similar to Covid-19.
While the symptoms are similar, RSV is a cold that has been around for a long time.
Usually it spreads in the winter during flu season, so for it to be spreading now is unusual.
It’s the most common right now in the American South and people are urged to get tested and rule out Covid if they come down with symptoms.
