babies and toddlers with mild viruses increasing in Staffordshire
Written by Hitmix News Team on 23 July 2021
Health bosses say they’re seeing a rise in cases of babies and toddlers with coughs and colds in Staffordshire, reflecting a national trend.
An increasing number of young children have never been exposed to mild viruses because of social distancing measures.
And babies who were born during the first lockdown haven’t had a chance to build a strong immunity.
Health bosses are now urging parents to book a Covid-19 test at one of the community testing centres.
