“The bronchiolitis epidemic could be large”, warns in its latest opinion the Scientific Council, which guides the French government.

Last winter, confinements and anti-Covid barrier gestures also blocked other viruses, including RSV (respiratory syncytial virus), responsible for bronchiolitis.

The children were less infected than usual, and therefore have less immunity. The French Scientific Council thus notes a “Significant acquired herd immunity deficit for children born after March 2020”.
