Influenza (flu) Update – NHS have declared that this could be the worst flu season in history!
Australia has already had more than 70,000 cases of flu this winter. There have been 2.5 times more flu diagnoses this year than in 2016 and the outbreak started earlier than usual.
Britain could face a significant increase in flu cases this winter. Australia and New Zealand had experienced a heavy burden of winter flu cases, raising concerns that Britain may experience the same in the next few months.
