If the adult has the RSV, then the infant can be at risk. It spreads easily from person to person through the contact of respiratory secretions. Factors that contribute to infants and small children for developing severe RAV infection: Infants born premature; Infants less than 6 weeks old; Infants with congenital heart disease; those with chronic lung issues; and immunodeficiency.
