once upon a time...
when much of the world was battling infection with Covid...
this tiny little nation
(a city-state, really)
called new zealand
was battling something different entirely.

a respiratory syncitial virus (RSV) that primarily infects...

i mean, our hospitals were swamped by it.
they thought it was because of lockdowns prior
which meant the new kids hadn't been exposed to it in their community
so with lockdown restrictions lifing for a time
the rsv ran rampant and they got several years worth of kids
infected all at once
in a sort of epidemic or pandemic or whatever you call it when something runs rampant about the city-state.

and i thought to myself... how do they know that it isn't covid?

and the answer to that...
was because it was affecting... infecting... children.
and not so much adults.

and also the answer was because it was due to RSV -- which is a different virus, entirely.

so that was that.

and this was a genuine problem for the city state of new zealand.
i mean to say they started needing to impose covid-type or style restrictions.
restrictions on how many people were allowed into the hospital to support the sick kids.
trying to limit the number of healthy brothers and sisters allowed in to try and halt the spread of the virus in the communities, apparently.
or whatever.

and people were being told to stay away from the hospital because they were being inundated with RSV.

hooking up the oxygen to these poor little kids who were having trouble getting enough oxygen because of the snot bunging up their tiny little airways.


then the covid came back.
i mean to say community transmission of Covid came back.
so we went back into lock-down.

and nobody has said boo about rsv.

nobody. nobody. nobody at all.

but now kids are getting covid, apparently. kids under the age of 1 or whatever.



novel story, eh?
