HOUSTON, TX (January09,
A highly contagious respiratory virus has landed hundreds of
children in Houston-area hospitals this season, with the number of diagnosed
patients even outpacing those with the flu, officials said. At Children's
Memorial Hermann Hospital, more than 140 pediatric patients have been
admitted since October due to RSV, officials said. The hospital could not
provide numbers for 2012. "We've definitely had a heavy RSV season, with a
lot of RSV admissions," said Dr. Galit Holzmann-Pazgal, medical director
of infection control for Children's Memorial Hermann. "And I would say some
of them have been quite severe."
