The whole city of Sydney is in the midst of an illness crisis with a sharp rise in the number of flu cases over last year and thousands struck down with gastroenteritis in the last week alone. Flu watchers have said it’s not just kids and the elderly that have to watch out, younger, healthier people are being whacked hard this year too. It could end up being the worst flu season on record.

More than eleven thousand influenza cases were reported in the state in July with a “spike” in aged care facilities, the Government department said. Doctor Vicky Sheppeard the Director of the Communicable Diseases at New South Wales Health said that each year more than eight hundred people die in New South Wales from complications associated with influenza. She also that “we are seeing high levels of both influenza A and B strains circulating in the community and older people are more susceptible to severe infection from the influenza A strain that is circulating.”

comment: It isn't like we are not having serious illness problem and spreading viruses. The mainstream media has become irresponsible in reporting anything important in health or outbreaks. Someone has to do this. They aren't.

Hope our Flu shot this fall has A in it! As one of the older people I get my shot no matter what.   Noro is just nasty and nothing you can do about it we have had it at our school I just wash my hands all the time!

Mainstream media is worthless!
