Experts say there is a significant increase in infections after new parents take their newborns to a hospital for a new infection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that while the number of new infections continues to be below the levels seen before the pandemic, more than half of all new infections were among parents who didn’t take their children to a doctor’s appointment.
The CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases said that in 2017, there were an estimated 1.2 million new infections, up from about 1.1 million in 2016.
The number of hospitalizations and deaths in those cases were more than twice as high as in the previous year.
The study, published in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases, found that among the 5,931 newly diagnosed cases, 3,837 were for respiratory infections, including pneumonia and bronchitis.

In this case, the baby could have a new strain of the virus and it’s possible the new virus will be resistant to the vaccine.
The vaccine does not protect against influenza.
