Gov. Kathy Hochul says New Yorkers have to prepare for what officials are calling a "triple-demic."
The city has issued an advisory urging residents to mask up as cases of COVID-19, flu and respiratory syncytial virus, known as RSV, rise.
The five boroughs are seeing an “unusually high” simultaneous spike in infections caused by the three respiratory viruses, the city’s health commissioner, Dr. Ashwin Vasan, said in a press release Friday.
Sheryl Leo, a registered traveling nurse who has been working in the city since the first wave of COVID-19, joined Rocco Vertuccio and Shannan Ferry Saturday morning on NY1 to discuss COVID-19, flu and respiratory syncytial virus.
