The CDC is warning people about a cold-like virus that makes breathing difficult.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to be on alert for signs of respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, Fox News reported.

The virus, which reaches its peak in the cold winter months, may be mistaken for the flu, given their similar symptoms. If left untreated, however, RSV’s repercussions could be more dangerous, especially for younger children. According to the CDC, 57,000 children under the age of 5 are sent to the hospital each year for RSV.
