Abstract

INTRODUCTIONAcute respiratory infections (ARIs) were the significant cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world, especially in infants and young children. The most frequently reported etiological agents responsible for ARIs were respiratory viruses including respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza virus (Flu), human parainfluenza virus (PIV), human coronavirus (hCoV), human rhinovirus (HRV), adenovirus (ADV), human metapneumovirus (hMPV), and human bocavirus (hBoV). In terms of geographical distribution, 70% of children who died from ARIs were in Southeast Asia and Africa.In China, despite the mortality of live births reduced significantly in past decades, ARIs were still the main cause of children mortality. Several studies have reported the prevalence of respiratory viruses causing ARIs in China; however most of these studies were conducted in developed regions of eastern coastal China. Thus, this paper presents data on the epidemiology of viral etiologies associated with ARIs in Gansu Province, which located in a relatively undeveloped area of China and aims to provide basic data of viral etiologies of ARIs to direct local disease prevention and control.METHODSEthical approvalThis study was approved by the Ethics Review Committee of Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and all participants were informed of the study objectives, and written
