If until now he had preferred to remain silent while waiting for the situation to stabilize, now Fedez decides to share a message in which he explains which is the virus that brought his daughter Vittoria to the hospital. And, above all, he is keen to make an appeal to parents like him: to be very careful. At the moment his wife Chiara Ferragni has not spoken on the subject.
This evening is the post in which Fedez reveals for the first time what is precisely the cause of Vittoria’s hospitalization, seven months. The girl was in the hospital the day before yesterday, after she had been sent home the previous day with the task of her parents to keep her under observation. The situation got worse overnight. All the fault of the “Rsv virus, or Respirarory synctyal virus”, says Fedez, who invites people to stay alert, as he says that “Italian hospitals are full”.
“If you have small children, be very careful, I recommend – he writes in an Instagram Stories on a black background after days of silence – this Rsv virus, or Respirarory Synctyal Virus, should not be taken lightly”. Then he publishes a newspaper headline: “Infant respiratory virus epidemic, it is alarm: Italian hospitals full”. What is certain is that it was her little brother Leone who transmitted the virus to the child, but he is better off than her. In fact, the worst form of the virus would belong to infants and not to already large children, as in the case of the Ferragnez.
What is the Rsv virus
Respiratory syncytial virus (sin-SISH-uhl), or RSV, is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be severe, especially for infants and the elderly. RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways of the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children under 1 year of age in the United States. At the moment there are 16 small hospitalized patients in Padua, of which 4 intubated in intensive care, at the Policlinico Umberto I in Rome 10 hospitalized, of which 2, just one month old, in intensive care, but also in other regions the situation is analogous. Doctors speak of an epidemic that arrived “two months early”.
Indeed, RSV can be dangerous for some infants and young children. Each year in the United States, approximately 58,000 children under the age of 5 are hospitalized due to RSV infection. Those at greatest risk for severe RSV disease include: premature babies; very young children, especially those 6 months and younger; children under 2 years of age with chronic lung disease or congenital heart disease (present from birth); children with weakened immune systems; children who have neuromuscular disorders, including those who have difficulty swallowing or clearing mucus secretions.

The pain of Chiara Ferragni: “Seeing a child sick is scary”
No details added by Chiara, who in the past few hours published a shot of her radiant family on a day a few weeks ago, hoping that this nightmare will soon pass: “Seeing a child sick is frightening. One realizes that health it is truly the greatest luxury, never forget it “, wrote the entrepreneur and influencer among other things. In these same days, however, also the daughter of a great friend of hers, also a newborn, has the child hospitalized in Los Angeles for the same reason: it is Rachel Zeleic, influencer and always close to Chiara. The more than forty million followers of the couple join the wishes of recovery, in the hope that little Vittoria will be able to return home soon.
