Oct. 1, 2019 — After a contagious illness put her baby in the intensive care unit with trouble breathing, a New Jersey mom wrote a plea to other adults on Facebook.

Ariana DiGrigorio in August urged people to “keep your mouths/breaths away from a baby’s face, hands, and feet” to lower the chances of spreading respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a common infection that can be dangerous early in life. She included a picture of her son Antonio from earlier this year, back when he was hospitalized with RSV at 8 months old. Her post has over 21,000 shares.
