Listen up parents! A respiratory virus is entering its peak season

By Stella Inger. CREATED Dec 4, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -  Listen up parents. Your little ones could be at risk.

A common respiratory virus is entering its peak season. It's called Respiratory "Sin-si-shul" virus or R-S-V.

It's highly contagious, and affects nearly all children by age two. Doctors tell us there is no cure for R-S-V, so protection is key.

If your baby starts showing signs of a cold, watch it closely because it could be the start of the virus.

I'm Stella Inger. I hope you'll join Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5 ... 6.. and 10. You can always join the conversation at kgun9.com, Facebook and Twitter.

Have a great day!

Stella Inger
