Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common respiratory virus that causes cold-like symptoms (runny nose, coughing, sneezing and wheezing). RSV spreads through infected droplets (coughs or sneezes), direct contact with infected saliva or if you touch contaminated surfaces such as doorknobs and then touch your face. This virus can be very serious in infants and older adults.
