Abstract:

Acute respiratory tract infections (ARI) are the most common illnesses in young children, irrespective of age or gender, and ARI accounts for one fifth of all deaths in children < 5 years.  The main viral causes of ARI were RSV identified in 10.14% (246/2444), followed by Adeno viruses (8%, 197/2444), influenza viruses (3.9%, 96/2444), HMPV (2.2%, 54/2444) and Para influenza virus 3 (1.1%, 27/2444) from sample collected from hospitals in Andaman and Nicobar archipelago India. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study discussed about the prevalence of various aetiologies in Andaman & Nicobar Islands.


Keywords: Respiratory Tract Infections, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Viral Aetiologies.
