Doctors in Australia are concerned about a shocking increase in babies being diagnosed with common viruses in the past three weeks.
Health workers say infants born during the Covid pandemic are being put in the ICU with severe cases of influenza, RSV and Covid.
The flu is specifically wreaking havoc, counting for many more hospital admissions in children than Covid.
An infectious diseases pediatrician at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead named Dr. Philip Britton told The Daily Telegraph, “Over the last month or so, we have seen four times the admissions to hospital for flu in children as for Covid.”
New South Wales doctors were worried three weeks ago when there were 355 RSV cases in one week.
Now, the number is up to an alarming 3,775 in a week.
