Default Britain on Alert for New Super-Flu

Last year more than 600 people died from winter flu in the UK




Thursday November 3,2011


By Jo Willey, Health Correspondent





A NEW strain of killer flu which could spread to *Britain within 24 hours is “one of the biggest biological threats of our time”, experts warned.




The alert comes after people started to fall victim to seasonal flu and the more virulent swine flu at the same time.

Such a rare incidence creates the risk of a lethal mutation, leading to an “ominous” super-flu virus for which humans have almost no immunity, said medical scientists.

And 29.000 in 1989 which is probably the higest number in a year which doesn't have a pandemic.

Always be wary of bird flu.

Watching Indonesia very closely of late. If swine and bird flu have a dance anywhere, it will probably be there.
