We know that “Health is not valued till sickness comes.” When we take care of our health, other things fall in the right place. With the change of time, the human body has evolved.
To live a balanced life healthy lifestyle is to be maintained. According to B.K.S. Iyengar, “Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind, and spirit.” According to the latest source, The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) declared to make people aware of the Respiratory Syncytial Virus in the United States.
The Solution For Respiratory Syncytial Virus
After the news was out and open, the United States started to form main points to handle the situation firmly. Inspection on the respiratory syncytial virus, preventive measures, and treatment was made available. The respiratory syncytial virus is a health issue caused by a virus. In this sickness, symptoms are similar to mild cold. These symptoms are not to be ignored because they can be severe.
Generally, children of young age, babies with weak hearts and lungs, and adults with comorbidities suffer more. People who are old suffer equally. Though the symptoms are mild, the effect of this illness is acute. This illness may lead to serious health problems. This virus was not effective previously. Just like influenza, this virus used to spread seasonally. But after the onset of Covid-19, this virus grew stronger. The contact pattern of the virus changed.
Due to this change in the transmission pattern of the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared a red alert for healthcare workers. This step ensured proper treatment for the patients. The health workers took cautious steps for treating patients with critical conditions. In June 2021, the vigilance started on the patients of the United States.
Patients with severe respiratory problems suffered the most. With the evolution of humans, viruses evolve too. Every year many people come in contact with this virus. People of every age group get affected by this virus. The death rate is also high with the respiratory syncytial virus. Every year the United States evaluates the number of affected people.
There are 58,000 people affected and hospitalized. About 100 to 500 children die when affected by this deadly virus. Children younger than five years are more prone to this virus. Adults are equally affected by the virus. Adults with the age of 65 years and above suffer the most. The approximate number of old who die yearly is 14,000. The number of people in the age group 65 years above hospitalized is 177,000 approximately. Many people do not go to health centers for their treatment, and these records are misplaced.
In November 2021, the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases declared that our surrounding is still in danger with the virus and that Covid-19 increases the risk. Covid-19 upgraded the risk factor in every aspect. Through the awareness of Covid-19, people got to know the Respiratory Syncytial Virus on a large scale.
Through new researchers, new guidelines are forming. These guidelines help treat patients and prevent the spread of the virus. This virus is a threat to humankind. According to the Director of NFID, William Schaffner, we should give importance to the treatments and preventive measures. The Director also promises to slow the rate of spread of the virus.
Vaccines and monoclonal antibodies will be available to the citizens very soon. The NFID started to work on a large scale to get the best outcome. Awareness among the citizen is necessary to stop the spread of the respiratory syncytial virus. With the help of new approaches, the life of kids and older adults will save. To get the best outcome, we must abide, “prevention is better than cure.”
