I was interviewed on the 2UE Lifestyle Overnight with David Prior program on the current influenza season.
Michael is from the GP Unit at Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research.
As you may know NSW is in the midst of the worst flu season on record with more than 8000 influenza cases confirmed in the past week alone. Flu patients were presenting to the state’s emergency departments in greater numbers than ever before, the latest NSW Health Influenza Surveillance Report showed.
A record 18,357 confirmed flu cases were reported between January and July, more than double the number of cases in the same period in 2016.
