Rady Children’s Hospital being inundated with patients with flu, RSV virus

As the county battles a flu outbreak, Rady Children’s Hospital is being inundated with patients both with the flu and respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, which is similar to a bad cold.

“We’re experiencing the peak of an epidemic of RSV virus at the same time we’re experiencing an epidemic of influenza and that’s rather unprecedented,” said Dr. John Bradley, the head of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Rady Children’s Hospital.
