Special Edition: RSV, Flu & Covid – ‘Tripledemic’ Explained

• 18 min

It’s been called a “tripledemic," as in three viruses surging during a pandemic. Experts are keeping their eye on high levels of flu in more than half of the states, new variants of COVID-19, and a recent surge of RSV. You’ll hear from data scientist Dr. Katelyn Jetelina, who you may know on social media as “Your Local Epidemiologist.” We’ll get into what the data shows about how effective the latest COVID boosters are, what she’s watching for as flu season ramps up, and her advice for balancing family and health this holiday season. Then, I’m joined by Dr. Sara Vora, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Seattle Children’s Hospital. We’ll talk all about RSV, including what parents need to know and why the virus is causing such a problem this year.
