The flu epidemic is taking a heavy toll on children.

At least 53 have died so far, that's more than three times as many deaths as there were at this point last year.

The Centers for Disease Control on Friday reported an additional 16 pediatric flu deaths.

48 states are reporting widespread flu activity.

CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund tells CNN that as bad as it is, the wave of flu cases hasn't yet peaked.
