In today’s Western countries, families are more likely than those of past decades to include two full-time working parents. This has led to an increase in he number of children attending daycare or some form of childcare outside the home. It is known that close quarters or semi-confined setting increase the risk of certain infections. Out of these infections, an emerging pediatric pathogen, that has also shown some prevalence in adults, is Kingella kingae.
