Kids are known for spreading germs quickly and with sometimes devastating effects. Many parents prefer to keep their sick kids at home, especially when the illness is contagious.

This just seems like common sense so that the germs don’t spread, doesn’t it?

Well, one Mom wants to emphasize this point, because, in her daughter’s case, the consequences were severe…

Mom, Laura Correada shared on Imgur the story of what happened to her 3-year-old daughter.

The child was playing with her sick cousin over the holiday. This is how she landed in the hospital with a very serious respiratory infection.

In the post she wrote:

 “Please. If your child has a cold, or a flu, or an upper respiratory infection, please keep them home and take care of them. 

My brother presented her like, ‘Oh she has a lung infection but she shouldn’t be contagious.’”

In the picture you can see the 3-year-old Chloe in an ICU bed, being treated for respiratory syncytial virus infection.

The infection was very harsh on Chloe’s body as she suffers from asthma but thankfully, she is recovering well.

This is certainly a lesson for all parents to take to heart.

Every child may react differently to a virus, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
