The director of the British Health Agency, Dr Jenny Harris, claims that a parallel morbidity with the flu and corona doubles the risk of death. “She warned that next winter we will see flu for the first time alongside corona and said:” I think this coming winter, it is likely that we will see flu in high numbers next to the corona for the first time, so the risk of having both is palpable at the same time. “
Dr Harris believes that in the coming winter the UK may be under a wave of multi.strain flu morbidity with reduced immunity. This, after last winter, the many traffic restrictions caused the virus levels in the country’s citizens to be low.
At the same time, the former deputy chief medical officer in England has warned that the coming winter will lead to uncertainty in dealing with the corona virus and calling on people to get vaccinated against corona and the flu.
Meanwhile, in Israel, too, a wave of illness is being prepared that will include both the corona virus and the flu. This, after a type A virus was detected in Israel last week, the Ministry of Health said that “we are preparing for the flu this coming winter and that Israel may face a parallel illness of corona and seasonal flu.”
