Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks. The Centers for Disease Control says those hospitalizations are now reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season.

Typical flu seasons usually don’t pick up steam until December.

Children are being hit the hardest.

It comes as other respiratory viruses, including RSV, are also spiking in kids.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 76% of pediatric hospital beds nationwide are full.
