    A study was carried out on 391 cases of bronchiolitis and pneumonia from different paediatric units in Rawalpindi/Islamabad, Pakistan. A clear winter spike of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was noted. It was found that there was a substantial increase of 30-50% in the positivity of RSV from...
