Beware of the flu this winter, warn British scientists

The flu could be more worrying than the Covid-19 this winter, warn experts in the UK. According to Anthony Harnden, a member of the committee on vaccination and immunity, the sharp drop in influenza cases last year may have lowered immunity to the disease.

The flu could become a bigger problem that the Covid-19, he estimates on the BBC Monday, June 21, 2021. British health experts are making it a major challenge for next winter, especially in the event of a new epidemic wave of coronavirus. In France, the flu killed more than 65,000 between 2012 and 2020.

Boris Johnson makes a case for vaccination

Usually, the flu vaccination period starts as early as September in Britain, but all efforts are currently focused on tackling Covid-19. A call was made to the government to ask what flu plan has been planned.

Visiting a government health agency, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Monday that scientists say the flu will come back this winter, that we will have a difficult winter for all kinds of reasons …

All the more reason to reduce the number of Covid cases now in order to give the NHS (British social security) time to cope, did he declare.
