Warning over dire consequences of Covid and flu ‘co-infection’

People should “not be complacent” over flu, experts have said as new research has shown dire consequences of co-infection of flu and Covid -19. Those infected with both flu and Covid-19 have a serious increased risk of death, Public Health England (PHE) said. Officials warned that both influenza and Covid-19 could be circulating at the same time as they urged people who are eligible to get vaccinated. The flu vaccination programme has been expanded this year so more people than ever will be eligible for a vaccine – up to 30 million people in England.
