|Respiratory syncytial virus||4 (12)||28 (28)||–||0|
|Rhinovirus||7 (21)||25 (25)||–||10 (36)|
|Enterovirus||5 (15)||24 (24)||–||15 (54)|

*NPAs, nasopharyngeal aspirates; HBoV1, human bocavirus 1; RTIs, respiratory tract infections; +, positive; –, negative.
†Triple and quadruple infections were common, and percentages within the columns may therefore add up to >100%.
