Not even a note of irony here!
I wonder why, if the masks, social distancing, hand sanitisers etc have worked so well to banish the flu covid-19:numbers are going up.
Couldn’t be that flu is being identified as covid, could it?
I apologise for my cynicism. Lol
Thousands of swab samples are processed and analysed by scientists at Public Health England (PHE) every week to survey the prevalence of different respiratory diseases in the population.
But of the 685,243 samples that have been reviewed at PHE’s laboratories since the first week of January, not a single one has tested positive for influenza.
In the week up to 31 December 2020, just one case of flu was confirmed by laboratory analysis.
