Information on the epidemiology of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in Africa is limited for crowded urban areas and for rural areas where the prevalence of malaria is high. At referral facilities in rural western Kenya and a Nairobi slum, we collected nasopharyngeal/orophary...read more
