Fifteen states across the United States are now seeing “high” or “very high” rates of respiratory infections. The mainstream media has panicked the masses enough that people all over the country are going to the doctor for the mildest of cold symptoms.

People tend to be panicking about all respiratory diseases including flu, COVID, RSV, and the common cold. COVID-19 and flu hospitalizations appear to be trending upward while RSV hospitalizations appear to be to be stable, the data shows.

Weekly COVID-19 hospitalizations have reached levels not seen since the end of February with 22,513 recorded the week ending December 2nd. However, they remain lower than rates seen at the same time last year.

COVID-19 hospitalization rates are elevated for infants and young children and highest among senior citizens, meaning serious illness is mainly affecting the oldest and youngest Americans. COVID-19 deaths are currently stable, but experts have previously warned that because deaths are a lagging indicator, the number of fatalities due to the virus could rise over the next few weeks. -ABC News
