RSV and Strep have never been common vernacular in Ireland.
In the US absolutely, common to hear someone talk about having or not wanting to have “strep throat”, whereas Ireland before the covids everything was a flu.
Now enter STREP A and it’s a very serious child killer.
I did encounter an instance of a childhood “scarlet fever” this year and thought that was odd and very Dickension, iirc strep can morph into Scarlet fever if left untreated.
This being a bacterial infection many home cures may work very well in the early stages and then what of anti-boitics?
Why the major media attention for what is surely a common and ordinary ailment?
Yes also, what component has the novel-injections played in reshaping the actual social immune systems, are parents immune systems compromised leading to children being more vulnerable?
Finally, I see a lot of online chatter about a recent mass nasally delivered vaccine in the UK for children.
There may have been on the QT, trials in Ireland some years back of similar novel nasal delivery system for flu, in perhaps a specific school or area, that was allegedly stopped because they ran into serious problems. Someone needs to dig there too.
