“On Friday, China recorded 3,837 new Covid infections — including 657 symptomatic cases and 3,180 asymptomatic cases.”

Official data notes that the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infects the lungs and respiratory tract, and it is so common that nearly all children have been infected at least once by the time they hit two.
