With the UK in the grip of Aussie flu, another deadly bug could hit the country soon. - From https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/health/french-flu-warning-as-another-deadly-virus-set-to-hit-the-uk-1-8323397
French flu seems likely to make its way across the Channel, with the NHS warning its workers to get vaccinated against it.
The virus has already claimed 30 lives in France, with over 700,000 people going to their GP during the last three weeks of December alone.
Meanwhile, 1600 cases of Aussie flu have been reported in the UK so far with 17 people having to be admitted to intensive care.
However, with the virus spreading through the country, figures are expected to increase vastly – flusurvey.org.uk shows that almost all areas of the UK are now affected.
Aussie flu symptoms are similar to those of ‘normal’ flu – sudden fever, aches, exhaustion, a dry chesty cough, headache, sore throat, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and trouble sleeping – but more severe, meaning that rather than recovery after a week or so, the time taken to get back to normal will be greater.
