RSV, which is currently spreading across New Zealand, is a common winter virus but it can be very serious for young babies.
If you are concerned about pēpi/baby, especially if they show any of these signs, take them to a doctor, after hours care centre, or the emergency department immediately so they can receive the care they need.
💜 Audible wheezing sounds
💜 Breathing very fast
💜 Laboured breathing — the ribs seem to suck inward when the child breathes in
💜 Seems very unwell
💜 Sluggish or lethargic.
You can prevent your tamariki catching RSV by keeping them warm, and at home and away from other children if they are sick. You can also help stop the spread by:
💜 Keeping yourself and your whānau at home if you are not well.
💜 Practice social distancing and wash or sanitise hands regularly.
If you need free health advice, you can call Healthline on 0800 611 116 – anytime 24/7.
If it’s an emergency – call 111.
Manaakitia tō whānau – he waka eke noa.
